Department for Transport funding for Ryde Harbour

Friday, August 15, 2014 - 8:08

RYDE Harbour has benefitted from a £1.7 million Department for Transport Fund created to help with repairs to facilities around the country after winter storms.
The Isle of Wight Council run harbour has received £29,455 towards the cost of  repairs to paving and concrete walling carried out earlier this year.
Ryde is one of 21 communities to benefit, from Cornwall to East Riding.
Secretary of state for transport Patrick McLoughlin said: "Our small ports are vital to the livelihoods of the communities they serve and are the lifeblood of the local economy.
"The government has already provided significant funding to reverse the damage caused by an exceptionally wet and windy winter. I want to see this additional money help the recovery in these coastal towns.
"The Small Ports Fund is in addition to £200 million already provided by the government to help fix roads, railways and coastal communities hit by the severe winter weather."
The harbour was recently awarded a certificate of excellence from travel website Trip Advisor, in recognition of consistently good reviews on the site.
