Tender to Go Out Today, To Acquire Passenger Fast Ferry

Tender to Go Out Today, To Acquire Passenger Fast Ferry

The Inter-Island Transportation Company Limited reveals an invitation to tender for the provision of a suitable passenger and vehicle fast ferry will be issued from today for proposals.

This update comes on the heels of Monday’s swim protest against issues affecting sea transportation between Port of Spain and Scarborough, by Minority leader of the THA, Watson Duke.

In a media release it  is noted that both the T&T Spirit and the T&T Express have been scheduled to undergo mandatory dry-dockings over the period June to November, 2017.

The T&T Spirit is undergoing its mandatory dry-docking effective June, 2017 and continuing and immediately following its return to service,  the T&T Express will proceed on its mandatory dry-docking.

Consequently, the sea bridge is currently being serviced on a daily basis by the T&T Express, which is supplemented by a passenger service provided by one of the water taxis.

In June, 2017, the Ministry of Works and Transport awarded a contract for a one year time charter of a suitable Roll-on Roll-off cargo vessel, the M.V. Cabo Star, to transport cargo comprising commercial trucks, vans and containers on the sea bridge.
