Wednesday, April 2, 2014 –Sunday ferry service will be impacted by ongoing renovations to the Alderney Ferry Terminal in Dartmouth in the coming weeks.
The ferry will not be running on Sundays in order to complete tile work and overhead work on the ferry ramp. The work will start on Sunday, April 6 and is anticipated to run on consecutive Sundays for approximately 4 weeks.
During this time, Metro Transit will provide bus shuttles between Alderney and Water Street running on the same schedule as the ferry, as an alternate to the ferry. Regular fare will be charged for this shuttle service.
These ongoing renovations to the Alderney Ferry Terminal are intended to improve traffic flow, increase the attractiveness of the terminal space, and improve overall customer experience and satisfaction. The work includes:
- Construction of new relocated and upgraded washrooms (alternate washrooms located in the Alderney Landing Building)
- Construction of the new main entrance vestibule, completed with the automatic sliding doors.
- Interior renovation of passenger area, including new floor tiles, ceilings completed with new lighting fixtures, new furniture and display cabinets.
HRM and Metro Transit apologize in advance for any inconvenience this construction may cause.
