Pier No. 4
North side: (a) Max. draft - base 4 m (13') - head 5.80 m (19')., (b) length 170 m (557'). South side: (a) Max. draft - base 6.10 m (20') - head 6.71 m (22')., (b) length 170 m (557').

The construction of this pier is concrete. It is protected by hard rubber fenders and has a fixed red light at the SW end. Each pier is connected with one railway which is independent of the others, but with no car outlet at end of piers, consequently, to perform any movement it is necessary to take out the remaining cars. For that reason, there is no road connecting the piers, and since piers are not paved, trucking operations cannot be performed. Operations performed at this pier are loading of bagged raw sugar, molasses and discharge of general cargo.
