Condor Ferries Move From Weymouth to Poole

Condor Ferries has announced sailings this weekend will be relocated from Weymouth to Poole, calling it a 'short term measure'.

The firm says that earlier this week mutual concerns were raised by Condor Ferries and Weymouth Harbour regarding the 'structural integrity' of part of the ferry berth in Weymouth Port. 

An initial investigation by the Weymouth Port Engineer was completed on Wednesday February the 15th, and based on this the berth will be removed from use to allow detailed investigations to be made.

Condor Ferries says it's contacting passengers affected by the change of port and where necessary helping them to change their travel plans, as well as making sure that up-to-date information is available on its website www.condorferries.com.  

Capt Fran Collins, Operations Director Condor Ferries, said:

"The safety of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority and we have taken this step to help sustain our lifeline ferry services between the Channel Islands and the UK.

"We are working closely with Weymouth Harbour to understand the extent of this issue and are in close cooperation with Poole Harbour Commissioners to make sure the change of port goes as smoothly as possible.”

There has been no indication about when sailings from Weymouth will resume.
