    Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

    “The positive trend in vehicle traffic seen in July has continued into August. The rate of fall in passenger traffic has also reduced and the key Liverpool route shows growth for the first time in months.

    The increased vehicle and passenger capacity provided by SuperSeacat along with active marketing of the lower fares available by the Steam Packet seems to be bringing about positive benefits.”
