Minister for Infrastructure Rene Hidding said that the Spirit of Tasmania II will resume full service on Sunday 17 January 2016.

“The freak weather event earlier this week that resulted in the damage to the vessel was unfortunate and very disruptive. However, TT Line staff, contractors and maritime crews did a fantastic job repairing the vessel, helping affected customers and managing freight disruptions.” Mr. Hidding said.

“TT Line staff, contractors and maritime crews worked night and day to deal with a range of challenges and on behalf of the Government I would like to thank them for their efforts.”

“I also want to acknowledge the efforts of Infrastructure Tasmania and the broader transport industry which played an important role in dealing with this situation.”

“It’s essential that when confronted with difficult circumstances we all work together and the ‘Team Tasmania’ approach over the past few days has been vital.” Mr. Hidding said.
