2017 ferry delays and cancellations

 

Since February 2016, PRO-LINK has been keeping a daily log of the delays and cancelations of Red Funnel, Wightlink and Hovertravel Solent crossings.

It has become obvious that the websites of each company do not keep an accurate record of these delays and cancellations.

Whether travelling across the Solent to visit relatives or friends, catch a flight, connect with a train, go to school or college, a hospital appointment, a business meeting….. these delays and cancellations can cause havoc, frustration, lost education or income. Many people take the safer option if they have a necessity to be on the mainland in the morning, by travelling the night before and hiring a hotel room at extra expense. Some have even been fined for overstaying in the ferry company car parks due to the ferries being delayed.

 

Should islanders have to put up with this? 

They wouldn’t with the Solent FREEDOM Tunnel.
