New High Speed Ferry Service Examined

September 23, 2005

Plans to launch a £10 million high-speed ferry service linking Edinburgh to Fife moved a step closer to reality, as council chiefs invited marine experts to devise plans for the scheme, according to a report on Scotsman.com. Transport leaders believe a passenger ferry between Leith and Kirkcaldy will help to reduce congestion on the Forth Road Bridge and make a healthy profit for the operator. Fife Council has agreed to hire a firm of consultants to draw up detailed proposals. It is hoped that twin-hulled passenger ferries, with space for up to 350 people, would complete the Leith-Kirkcaldy route in just 17 minutes. Fife Council's area transportation manager today said the £10 million plans could get the green light by next summer.
