UPDATE: The Venture was successfully removed from the ramp at Lamb Island at approximately 6.15pm.
EARLIER: Due to a mechanical failure, the Venture vehicle ferry has become stuck on the ramp at Lamb Island. At this stage, we anticipate that we will not be able to remove the vessel from the ramp until later tonight.
As a result, there will be no vehicle ferry services to or from Lamb Island today, and our other two vessels operating to Russell, Macleay and Karragarra Islands may be delayed as our crew does their best to pick up as many extra vehicles as possible. We are also sending an additional vessel, Moongalba, to assist.
All affected customers are being contacted by phone to discuss alternative arrangements.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience and will be providing updates if the situation changes.
