The Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal could soon come under new management, with the government poised to launch a public tender for its operating rights, the Macau Daily Times reports

However, details, including the bid evaluation criteria, have not yet been made public by the Marine and Water Bureau (known by its Portuguese initials DSAMA).

Sociedade de Turismo e Diversões de Macau (STDM) – the parent company of local gaming concessionaire SJM Resorts – has been operating the terminal since 2018, when it took over the facility from the DSAMA.

SJM Resorts also holds the contract for maintaining Macao’s public waterways and harbour basins, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Macau Dredging Services.

Lengthy construction work is expected to affect the operations of the Outer Harbour Ferry Terminal this year.

The construction involves a 1.5-kilometre overpass being built to connect Zones A and B of the new urban reclamation. Work is expected to take place over three years.
