More capacity needed, says Steam Packet CEO

Stretching the period during which passengers arrive at and depart from the TT and Festival of Motorcycling may become unavoidable, if the events continue to grow.

That's the warning from Steam Packet Cheif Executive Mark Woodward, after his firm posted a six per cent rise this year on numbers coming to the festival.

The Packet is currently involved in a tender processing with the government for the long term running of the Island's ferry services.

Mr Woodward says in the long term extra capacity will be needed to cope with demand.
