Charlestown, Nevis – May 16, 2007
The long awaited Sea Bridge (St.Kitts – Nevis) is on Nevis shores. It has docked at Long Point, Nevis. According to Rawlinson Isaac, the Chairman and CEO Sea Bridge(SKN) Inc.
The Sea Bridge will initially provide a daily ferry service to transport vehicles from Cades Bay, Nevis to Major’s Bay, St. Kitts, at a cost of only EC $75.00.
The Sea Bridge a 135 feet vessel with a capacity for 15 vehicles will cover the 3.6 miles distance within approximately 15 minutes. The Sea Bridge will operate a schedule that will facilitate 10 trips daily or as dictated by the market.
Isaac further said that the development of the Peninsula provided a tremendous opportunity for Nevisians to seek gainful employment both in construction and subsequently in the tourism sector.“Presently, cruiseships which dock at the Port Zante, St. Kitts will be able to have their passengers pay a visit to Nevis and return at a very convenient time. Other mutual arrangements can be facilitated by tour operators,” Isaac further stated.
Isaac noted that families would find the vessel a great asset, “weekends and public holidays present a great opportunity for families to visit which can strengthen relationships.”
Also to benefit from the vessel are events such as the Music Festival, Culturama, Carnival, Village Festival, and cricket matches.
It is believed that the construction of a bridge will improve the degree of transportation between the two islands, integrate the economic sectors on both islands, create greater political and social harmony, improve the well being of the citizens of St. Kitts-Nevis and lead to greater investment in the physical infrastructure.
Other benefits include: increase of labour mobility, acceleration of the rate of return on the Peninsula highway investment, make travel more convenient, augment the travel experience for visitors and increase the trade between the islands.
