Wightlink diverts sailings to Portsmouth International Port

Wightlink diverts sailings to Portsmouth International Port (PIP) during a three-day closure of Portsmouth Car Ferry Terminal in March 2017

Dear customer,
As part of our £45 million investment in a new ship and port improvements, Wightlink car ferries to and from Fishbourne will use Portsmouth International Port (Cruise and Cross Channel Ferry Terminal for three days in early March 2017. This will allow contractors to carry out work at Portsmouth car ferry terminal.
The diversion will take place:
Tuesday, 7 March 2017
Wednesday, 8 March 2017
Thursday, 9 March 2017 
In addition, please note:
No stand-by traffic will be accepted at PIP.
Dangerous goods cannot be shipped during these days 
As PIP accepts international traffic, it is likely that vehicles travelling to the Isle of Wight may be searched. Freight drivers and their passengers will not be able to leave their vehicle while at the port unless they have their passports with them. This is a standard security measure at PIP.
If you have any queries or want to discuss what this means to you, please contact a member of our staff.
