QUÉBEC, Oct. 6, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Understanding that the impact of a December drydock is substantial for the population, the Société des traversiers du Québec (STQ) wishes to inform its clientele that the NM Mécatina II drydock scheduled initially for the first week of December will be postponed to summer 2017.
The exact date of the drydock will be communicated in the coming months. However, the population can expect that the NM Mecatina II will be removed from her service in the summer time of 2017, for a period of 5 to 6 weeks, including transit days to and fro.
The STQ understands that this situation will bring some challenges for the community, and is working on putting in place a temporary service to replace the barge during this interruption of service.
More information will be disclosed when we have more details on the temporary service. The STQ would like to thank the population for their understanding and cooperation.
