Notice January 26th, 2017 Please be advised that trenching work is required which will affect both jog approached and this work will take approximately 30 days. The work will be done in two phases. Flanders jog (2 weeks) then Beaumont Jog (also 2 weeks).
There will no particular impact to the service provided for cars, trucks, cube van sized vehicles, or walk-on passengers, regardless of which jog the vessels use, but will impact tractor trailers and other long vehicles, and trucks towing a trailer.
These tractor trailers etc. will have to ensure they board the ferry going to the jog where the trenching work is not taking place. Businesses expecting pre-arranged deliveries, should advise when these vehicles are expected, to further ensure a smooth service.
There may be some impacts or possible delays experienced, such as if a vessel is unable to move as expected and it is docked at the jog where tractor trailers can get off. Hopefully the above will minimize any impact to this group of vehicles. There are no expected impacts on any other type of traffic.
This trenching work is expected to start on Monday 30th January.
