Landings are designed as resting place for passengers during berthing and deberthing of vessels. In general, landings are provided near mean high and mean low water levels to facilitate embarking and disembarking of passengers (BS6349: Part 2: 1988).

Therefore, the level of landing steps should be different from place to place because of different mean high and mean low water levels in different locations.
