Public Advisory: Labrador Marine Service Update

The Department of Transportation and Works advises that ice conditions are delaying the start of the Labrador shipping season.

The MV Sir Robert Bond had been scheduled to begin service between Lewisporte, Cartwright and Happy Valley-Goose Bay tomorrow (Friday, June 18). The start date for this service has been rescheduled to June 25, pending ice conditions.

Also due to ice conditions, services provided by the M/V Northern Ranger and the MV Astron will be delayed. Transportation and Works officials will continue to monitor the ice conditions and service will commence along the Labrador coast as soon as conditions permit.

Further updates will be provided as details become available.
