Downtown Nanaimo ferry terminal back in business

Ferry service between Nanaimo and Gabriola Island returns to normal Thursday (Sept. 1) as repairs to a damaged trestle are complete at the B.C. Ferries downtown terminal.

Vehicle traffic to and from the island was rerouted to the Duke Point ferry terminal Aug. 12 after a Royal Paving truck loaded with asphalt drove onto the passenger walkway, collapsing a portion of the trestle.

Foot passengers had to board a water taxi at the Nanaimo Boat Basin.

Regular service begins Thursday with the 5:25 a.m. sailing from Gabriola.
