Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

“Whilst the monthly figures show a fall on 2005 traffic levels, this I mainly attributable to the absence of the traditional Lady of Mann day trips from other ports around the Irish Sea. If this traffic is excluded from the 2005 figures the total passenger traffic is on a par with 2005. Vehicle traffic continues to show satisfying steady growth. On a more positive note, May 2006 was a record month for freight vehicle metreage at 43,033 metres, an 11.1% increase on May 2005.”
