BC Ferries: Preparations Underway for Berth One Project
- Business & Finance
BC Ferries has announced that Berth One, which is the primary operational berth at Langdale terminal, will be temporarily closed from mid-January to mid-April, 2017 while marine structures are upgraded or replaced.
During this closure, the Langdale-Horseshoe Bay service will operate out of Berth Two at Langdale terminal, which allows single-deck vehicle loading and unloading as opposed to double-deck.
“BC Ferries needs to continue to invest and renew its terminal infrastructure in order to provide safe and reliable service,” said Mark Wilson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Engineering.
“Once completed, we expect at least 20 years of dependable service from Berth One, enabling us to continue to meet the expectations of our customers.”
In order to accommodate the berth construction, the water taxi service to Gambier and Keats Islands, provided by Kona Winds using their Stormaway vessels, will be temporarily relocated from Langdale terminal to the Gibsons Harbor Marina.
