Nanaimo Harbour ferry terminal slated for upgrade

A four-week construction project is set to launch at the Nanaimo Harbour ferry terminal this fall.

B.C. Ferries plans to upgrade the downtown ferry terminal after Labour Day to the tune of approximately $240,000.

According to ferry corporation spokesman Darin Guenette, an old ticket booth will be replaced with a larger building that can also accommodate office space and storage. A small IT server room will also be constructed on site, and B.C. Ferries will remove a rental trailer, which is anticipated to free up traffic lane space for five to seven more cars.

The project, which will run over four weeks, is not anticipated to hold up ferry traffic. A temporary, full-service ticket booth will be set up on site.

The last terminal renovation happened in 2011, when B.C. Ferries worked on the $420,000 passenger waiting room.
