Saturday, January 9, 2016, 00:01 by Matthew XuerebMove to save Gozo cargo ferry serviceGozo Channel has stopped operating its twice weekly cargo ferry service from Sa Maison in Pietà but discussions are under way to find an alternative wharf, according to the company’s chairman.Joe Cordina said the service, which operated on Tuesdays and Thursdays, was “only used by around four stevedores” and was not financially viable.http://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20160109/local/move-to-save-gozo-cargo-ferry-service.598099
How does the freight get there.
sej016. I think you could be correct there, I have only seen one making its way up the coast , I often wondered how long it took to travel from Valletta as opposed to driving to Cirkewwa and catching the ferry.
If i recall correctly, the ferry from Valletta Harbour is largely for freight (trucks) and is not as frequent ?
Thank you Derek!
Pat.this is the easiest way to get to and from Gozo, I think that there is a ferry from Valletta Grand Harbour as well. Of course if you have your own boat you can use that.
So is this the only way to get from Valletta to Gozo?
2 months ago ganniDear Dougie2, for us maltese you are one of the best chat ambassador of skyline webcams spread around malta , together with DEREK JAMES BEVAN and PL. Hope we see you waving at the St. George's Square, The Palace – Valletta skyline webcam and your comments on ships in our grand harbour. Bye and CISK. http://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/malta/malta/valletta/st-george-square.htmlhttp://www.skylinewebcams.com/en/webcam/malta/malta/floriana/grand-harbour-valletta-waterfront.html
Ganni.there are now three cameras in the UK
Anybody asking for a skyline webcam , this is what Dougie2 : wrote on Dover Beach – Kent live cam:Don't knock it guys. Skyline didn't decide the location of its first UK camera -- that was the site agreed jointly with its host, Dover Sea Sport Centre.To explain: someone, or some organisation, has to request a cam from Skyline ... and sponsor it. That means the camera sitting, erection and maintenance is hosted by, i.e. paid for by, the sponsor. If you click on Info, Services, Get your Livecam at the bottom of this page you will know how Skyline helps promote interest and the tourist trade etc, for 500+ customers in 35+ countries. It's like a live 24/7 online advert, able to be seen by millions of people worldwide, at the click of a mouse key. Cool eh?
Also, the camera at St Julian's has sound, mainly traffic and wind noise but sound nonetheless, sound for all of them?
Definitely a yes to a camera in St George's Terry. Another at Qbajjar would be fantasic!
I really enjoy watching the ferry go from one place to the other. I at first though it would be nice to move the camera to the left but I think it's perfect the way it is.
Aye Terry. A cam or two in or around the Citadel would be a great addition to our viewing.
