    Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

    “After a number of disappointing months for passenger traffic, July 2005 figures contain a positive sign, with a 3.7% increase in vehicle traffic. This growth indicates that the extra vehicle capacity provided by SuperseaCat is beginning to show a positive benefit. The recently introduced “under three day break” fare of £99 return for a car and two passengers should also attract more car traffic.”
