    Always a loss maker , on paper it is a good idea if you had a Newcastle style service not sure about freight.

    It’s in the SNPs intrest to keep the route or a very similar one open for obvious reasons. (Trying to keep politics out of it.)

    Published: 2018-04-23 13:01:56 CEST PERFORMANCE ISSUES CLOSES ROSYTH-ZEEBRUGGE ROUTE COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT performance issues closes rosyth-zeebrugge route The route between Rosyth in Scotland and Zeebrugge in Belgium carrying only freight is being closed. The financial performance of the route, that deploys one ro-ro freight ferry for three weekly round trips, has struggled to meet expectations. Freight volumes are, in general, increasingly being focused on large hubs offering a high frequency of departures deploying larger ferries. As volumes are not foreseen to pick up on the route nor large enough to sustain an efficient route set-up, the route is being closed. The annual revenue of the route was around DKK 100m in 2017.

    I’m sure it’s Northlink that offer a car parking service for customers seems a good idea if a bit impractical for a busy crossing, I’m certainly not looking forward to my crossing on Bretagne in the summer I’m sure there won’t be as much room as there was on my last crossing.

    I presumed it was due to safety issues for example a terrorist attack.

    Had a few bad experiences on the M5 now it’s one of the reasons we decided not to use Plymouth for this years holidays. No excuses for bad service onboard personal I would be doing what wortley said.
