Portsmouth’s Car Ferry Terminal has been closed for three days to Wightlink ferries while work takes place for the terminal’s £45 million upgrade.

Vehicles are being diverted to Portsmouth International Port until the end of Thursday, for those travelling to and from Fishbourne.

The multi-million pound investment includes the launch of a new ferry for the Portsmouth Gunwharf-Fishbourne route that will be able to take 1,000 passengers and 178 cars per crossing.

The company will only be accepting booked vehicles for the next three days, and foot passengers can only travel on the Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde Pier Head passenger catamaran route.

An additional overnight foot passenger service will be run between Portsmouth Harbour and Ryde Pier Head.

Ferries will also be diverted to Portsmouth International Port on March 28,29 and 30.
