Dartmouth Lower Ferry slipway work to begin
- 7 January 2013
- From the section Devon
Repair work on a ferry slipway which links two parts of Devon is due to begin later.
The Dartmouth Lower Ferry will be out of service for three months while the £1m work, which includes repairing the slipway and walls, takes place.
The ferry transports vehicles and foot passengers between Dartmouth and Kingswear.
South Hams District Council is funding the work, which is expected to finish on 29 March.
A council spokesman said engineers had found significant corrosion to the crane rails and deterioration to the slipway.
The Dartmouth Higher Ferry, which also connects the two locations, will not be affected.
