3 ferry boats added to the river navigation department’s

GOA: The last of the three ferry boats which was to be added to the river navigation department’s fleet is expected to be launched this month. The third ferry boat will be operational on the river route by September-end, said captain of ports James Braganza. “We have 38 ferry boats plying on 18 routes across Goa and have inducted three now,” he said. Old ferry boats in the department are being phased out and the new ones are being inducted in their place.

“We are phasing out three ferry boats on an average, every year. Over the next two to three years, we expect to eliminate at least nine of them so that we have a newer lot in the fleet,” Braganza further said. In addition to this, the long pending solar ferry boat is also on the cards for next financial year. “Due to financial constraints we had kept in on hold but once we issue the work order, we expect it within six to seven months. We intend to operate it on the Panaji to Aldona route, to revive this route,” Braganza said.
