No Weymouth ferry till March 2013

Post by GD on Tue 03 Apr 2012, 6:01 pm

Plans to carry out major repairs to a Dorset ferry terminal have been given the go-ahead by councillors.

Condor Ferries relocated its Channel Island sailings from Weymouth to Poole in February and Weymouth's quay remains closed because of structural problems.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council approved the appointment of engineers to repair the quay wall by March 2013.

Engineers will also design new terminal buildings. Condor said it is liaising with the council on the plans.

Recommendations approved by council's management committee included the appointment of consulting engineers Atkins to carry out 2m of repairs as a priority.

The authority said it is losing about 650,000 a year while Condor is sailing to Poole.

Many businesses, in particular hotels and guest houses, have also reported a loss of trade.
