Extra weekend runs added for Bell Island ferry
Newfoundland and Labrador transportation officials added two extra runs to the Bell Island ferry service, just a week after being forced to scale it back to meet a federal safety order.
The Department of Transportation and Works will add an extra run on Friday and Saturday nights, effective this weekend.
A new schedule introduced on Monday involved scaling back the schedule by one run per day, in order to meet a federal order to allow for crew rests and for maintenance.
As well, the service will involve a later departure from Bell Island on Sunday night.
