Work Begins on Ferry Terminals

Thursday, October 12, 2006
The News Bulletin said that ferry passengers heading to Vancouver via Departure Bay and returning from Horseshoe Bay may experience some short delays over the next nine months as both terminals undergo major renovations. The work is necessary to accommodate new state-of-the-art Super C-class vessels, the first of which is slated to sail the Strait of Georgia in late 2007. The twin upgrades, costing $28m, will create alternating berth closures at both terminals. After work on berth 2 is complete, berth 3 will get a refit. Three Super-C class ships - Coastal Renaissance, Coastal Inspiration and Coastal Celebration - are expected to be in full operation by the summer of 2008. The new vessels will hold 370 vehicles and 1,650 passengers, up from the current capacity of 350 vehicles and 1,466 passengers. source: News Bulletin
