Trade cars for Ramsgate?

[ October 6, 2015   //   ]

Thanet council leader Chris Wells has told a local meeting that the currently disused port of Ramsgate would soon be handling trade cars. He told a meeting of local resident associations on 5 October that cars parked in the port were being used to test the feasibility of operating a “car transporter” service that would run “at least twice a week”.
The port of Ramsgate has not handled regular services since the withdrawal of the TransEuropa passenger and freight route to Ostend in 2013.
Meanwhile, former Sally Line chief executive Bill Moses has launched a campaign to bring ferry services back to the port of Ramsgate. According to the Thanet Gazette, he says that three potential investors have shown an interest.
