Craig Brewin, a British blogger on island, asks several pertinent questions about the latest developments in the island’s ferry service operations on his Living in Montserrat blog.
Last week, the government announced it would not be pursuing a new ferry service for the island once the current contract with the Jaden Sun ends. Here is a link to the official statement from Premier Joseph Farrell on the matter. https://discovermni.com/2020/09/01/official-statement-premier-joseph-e-farrell-announces-interim-arrangements-for-ferry-service/
In a recent post Brewin says the announcement by the government leader raises more questions than answers as no clarity was given on what happens next and how much it will cost residents who now wish to travel.
