Discussion Board / Re: Investment at Rosslare Europort
« Last post by Steven on Today at 09:43:41 PM »
Donít think itís linkspan related, that would be a very specific capital project and not where they need to look at the moment, three modern link spans at port, one a double deck should be sufficient and the other two can be converted to double deck quite easily.

Would expect more info in the People this week.

We shall see in due course.  Details have been very sketchy tbh.  Surprised there doesnít seem to be any official statement at all. Missed PR opportunity?

Am trying to find out what was proposed in the news for investment for the port yesterday. In monetary terms and possible project outline
Ä15m over a number of years (5?) apparently.  Sounds a lot but really isnít to be honest.  Linkspan replacement has been mentioned by some I believe - P&Oís new Cairnryan linkspan cost in the region of £13m including all the assosciated work (which included realignment) and Portsmouth just invested £9m in a new twin tier linkspan.  I recall a couple of years ago Rosslare Port was making a couple of million a year so if this is still the case CIE are only reinvesting the money the port makes anyway!

Cork is spending a heck of a lot more in any case!

Irish ferries are being very frustrating lately
playing a dangerous game leaving Brittany ferries and Stena get a head start on French run for customers
trusting that people will remain loyal
they need to seriously up there PR too
take a lesson from Brittany ferries especially over their new build the honfleur keeping people updated on how the build is going
To be fair it would be a lot more frustrating for people if they put ďseatsĒ on sale and kept cancelling them (again)!

Hw do you book the minicruise to France - not clear from IF website.

Also can you use Tesco Vouchers - semmss to suggest you cannot but I think you can.

What if you are one person travelling - I do not want to pay for 2 - surely I can have a discount.

As travelling from Holyhead - Holyhead - Dublin route for a cheaper fare?

Will a bus take me from Cherbourg terminal to Hypermarket near middle of town?

Thanks for any help.
Book on this link

Painters busy on a sunday touching up the paint. At least three cherry pickers in action.

Hopefully WB Yeats will be ready for delivery voyage this week.
