The vital sea link to the Isles of Scilly has been secured tonight. The Government says it'll pledge £8m towards improving the harbours on St.Mary's and at Penzance.
It follows 2 years of uncertainy after a £65m scheme was thrown out.
Tonight's announcement is the news many islanders have been waiting for. The sea link has become even more important since the loss of the helicopter service to the islands last year.
Plans to improve the harbours that connect Cornwall with the Isles of Scilly have been given the green light from Local Transport Minister Norman Baker.
The Minister announced work at St Mary’s and Penzance harbours can go ahead, subject to final clearances and securing European funding.
The work involves dredging at Penzance and pier widening and improved freight handling facilities at St Mary’s.
– Norman Baker MP, Local Transport Minister
We are putting at least £8 million into this scheme which shows that the Coalition Government is serious about protecting the livelihood of the Isles of Scilly.
Improved terminal buildings will provide better conditions for passengers. Changes to the harbours themselves will ensure new vessels can still access the port protecting this route for use by residents, freight and holiday makers.
