There have been two major power and critical safety related defects that have impacted on a 3 ferry service over the last week. The first is a power related issues on Tamar II which has now been resolved. The second issue concerns the mountings and the framework of Tamar II gantries. This work requires the assistance of specialist contractors who are not available to complete the task until the weekend.
Preparations of the gantry works will take place on Friday evening resulting in the ferry remaining out of service until safety sign off on completion of the work. Providing no complications arise from this critical engineering work it is anticipated that Tamar II will be available to support scheduled service on Monday, 23 August.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank customers for their patience. Please consider adjusting journey planning accordingly during this interim period.
