Wightlink’s Portsmouth car ferry terminal will be closed on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as part of the company’s £45m investment in a new ship and port works.

All sailings to and from Fishbourne will be diverted to the Portsmouth International Port, the cross channel ferry terminal, during those days.

A revised timetable will be in operation. Wightlink will only accept booked vehicles at this time.

Foot passengers will only be carried on Wightlink’s catamarans from Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head and there will be extra overnight cats on this route.

Wightlink has advised everyone planning to travel between Portsmouth and Fishbourne to arrive at Portsmouth International Port at least 30 minutes before the time of their booked sailing.

Vehicles and passengers travelling to or from the international port may be subject to checks.
