Minister of Works and Transport, Rohan Sinanan says the government will lease another passenger vessel to service the seabridge to cater for when the current vessels go on drydock.
The T&T Spirit will go on drydock in June and the T&T Express will do the same in September.
Minister Sinanan told today's post-Cabinet media conference that the leasing of another vessel will ensure that there are always two vessels available to service the seabridge.
The vessel will be leased for a period of six months.
He says he expects that the drydocking of the vessels will rectify the major problems being experienced at this time.
