Contract Awarded for New Digby Neck Ferry

A.F. Theriault and Sons Ltd., in Meteghan River, Digby Co., has been awarded the contract to build the new Digby Neck ferry.

The new ferry will replace the 20-year-old Joe Casey, providing service to Brier Island which sees over 30,000 vehicles and 75,000 passengers per year.

The Joe Casey will be used as a spare ferry for provincial operations.

The ferry will be about 35 metres long and 13 metres wide, accommodating 18 cars with additional seating for 10 passengers.

The government has a fleet of nine ferries operating around the province. Delivery of the new ferry is expected to be late next year.
