[ October 16, 2017   //   ]

P&O Ferries says it has had the highest freight traffic on its Larne/Cairnryan route in any third quarter of the year since 2011. It carried 53,305 lorries and trailers on its ships in July, August and September, up 3.3% on the same quarter last year. P&O Ferries Sector Director on the Irish Sea, Neal Mernock, said Larne “has outstanding connections via rail and road, especially after the upgrading of the A8 dual carriageway.” P&O Ferries operates seven sailings a day between Larne and Cairnryan with the 21,000-ton European Causeway and European Highlander.
