£17 million government package to protect freight routes to Northern Ireland Funding to safeguard ferry routes between Great Britain and Northern Ireland

24 Apr 2020

Funding to safeguard ferry routes between Great Britain and Northern Ireland during COVID-19 outbreak.

Vital ferry routes between Great Britain and Northern Ireland have been safeguarded, thanks to a multi-million-pound government scheme to help ensure critical freight can continue to move into and across the union.

The package, worth up to £17 million, is being funded by the UK government and the Northern Ireland Executive and will be made available to operators so that they can continue running freight services on 5 sea routes between Great Britain and Northern Ireland during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced today (24 April 2020) that further funding, worth tens of millions of pounds, will also be made available to support more routes across the UK, subject to discussions with operators.
