Appledore to close

Recommended Posts

Seems as though Babcock just want rid of it regardless of any offers..Malta, whose loss of contract they blame, have a fleet of just 8 inshore and offshore patrol vessels, when their all actually in service. Must have been one helluva lucrative contract!!!

Local MPs are seeking government support for Appledore to get a contract to replace Scillonian III which is now over40 years old.

Is that anywhere near happening? People have been taking about a replacement for it for a long time, and we're yet to see much progress. I appreciate it's a source of hope, but I don't know how likely/imminent it would be.

Yes, that's true.  And the Devon MPs  have been conspicuously unsuccessful at getting the under water stretch of railway at Dawlish by-passed, getting an Okehampton Parkway station established beside the A30 at Okehapton with a regular train  service via Exeter, getting the A38 to Plymouth upgraded to motorway as a continuation of the M5, , and getting tolls taken off the Tamar bridge in the way that is to happen with the Severn bridges. But hey they might one day get a winner !
