Gabriola Ferry Terminal Repairs

Floating Crane Aids In Repairs

Repairs are being made to the damaged passenger ramp at the Gabriola Ferry terminal across from Port Place Mall.

The ramp was damaged when a truck loaded with asphalt drove onto the trestle supported ramp which was designed to carry people and not heavily laden trucks. A portion of the trestle collapsed and the truck wound up in the water. Fortunately the driver escaped serious injury by jumping from the truck.

In the meantime a water taxi is bringing Gabriola foot passengers to the F dock in the inner harbour, while car traffic is being re-routed to Duke Point terminal. The terminal is not expected to return to regular use until the end of August.
