I just hope the Irish government and the EU have a satisfactory Plan B at the ready.
The UK is (supposed) to join the Common Transit Convention
on departure from the EU, how that will work in practice remains to be seen.
Ontop of that, acording to the Department of Transport
, there is suficient capacity with IF, Stena, BF and CLdN in the event of the loss of the land bridge corssings via the UK.
Since that assessment, The W.B Yeats has arrived in Dublin (costing ICG ?144 million euro), Stena Vinga has replaced Stena Nordica boosting capacity in Rosslare, and CLdN have invested heavily in ships operating between Cork and Dublin and the contenant.
The actual question we need to ask is have the IRHA done any research, or are they just kicking up a fuss as they don't want to pay for longer crossings?
