Government to lease another passenger vessel for when ferries go on drydock

Thursday, May 18, 2017 - 12:00

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.
