P&O pulls out of Troon

[ December 22, 2011   //   ]

P&O has discontinued its once-daily freight ferry service between Larne and Troon. The line said that closure had been necessitated by the need for major repair work on the Norcape ferry, one of the few vessels capable of negotiating the shallow harbour at Troon. The 32-year-old vessel is now en route to Turkey for scrapping. P&O added that the traffic would be absorbed on its remaining Larne-Cairnryan route.
