Services for Virgin Gorda ferry will be temporarily located at the Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour Marina on Dock B only.

Managing Director of the BVI Ports Authority, Mr. Alfred Henley said that the Ports Authority is working with all necessary parties to ensure seamless operation during the temporary relocation while works are being carried out on the Saint Thomas Bay Jetty.

He said, “Ensuring that the public experiences little to no discomfort is our priority at this time while we repair the Saint Thomas Bay Jetty. I wholeheartedly understand that commuting in itself is strenuous and we wish not to complicate this any further.”

Work on the Saint Thomas Bay Jetty is expected to begin on May 1 and last for 30 days. The scope of works entail the laying of a wearing slab with steel reinforced concrete on the existing jetty, repairing and replacing bollards, placing new bollards for the cargo ramp and pouring a concrete slab on the entire apron, as well as the installation of lighting on the apron.
