Fall in harbour traffic in June

Thu, 25 Aug 2011

The number of people using Douglas harbour fell during June.

The latest figures from the Department of Infrastructure show a 2.5% drop in passengers, and a 2.45% fall in vehicles.

There was a small increase in use of the Heysham route, but Belfast and Dublin both recorded hefty falls.

The DoI says TT traffic was good at the start of the month, but that the less frequent sailings to Liverpool and lack of Snaefell vessel meant traffic was down towards the end of the month.

In total, just over 92,000 passengers passed through Douglas in June compared with 94,300 in 2010
