Demolition and replacement of the 1920s and 1970s sections of the Middle Slip Jetty
The addition of two new fender spacer units
New navigation aids to be installed
Refurbishment and upgrade of the existing jetty and berthing facilities, including the upgrade of the shore side infrastructure

Once complete, HMNB Portsmouth will be home to two new aircraft carriers – HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince Of Wales – the biggest ships ever built for the Royal Navy.
