Two New Harbour Ferries Coming to Halifax
A tender has been issued for a pair of new Halifax harbour ferries. Halifax Transit says they’ll replace the Halifax III and Woodside I. Both ferries are over 30-years-old. The Herald reports the budget for the two new vessels is roughly 12-million-dollars and they’re expected to be similar to the Voila Desmond, Halifax’s newest harbour ferry that went into service in July. The two new vessels are expected to be operational in 2017 or 2018.
