Coquitlam returns to service

BC Ferries has returned to the regular summer schedule on the Landgdale-Horseshoe Bay route.

The ferry company ran a modified schedule from June 25 to July 4 after the Queen of Coquitlam was pulled from service for repairs to a leaking seal mechanism on the propeller shaft. The oil that had been slowly leaking from the ship was mineral-based, according to the company.

Service on Route 3 was supplemented by water taxis over the Canada Day weekend.

BC Ferries is also advising travellers to expect heavy traffic next week because of the BC Bike Race. The 9:25 a.m. sailing from Saltery Bay to Earls Cove on July 10 will be exclusively for BC Bike Race cyclists and support vehicles only.

The race will impact traffic at the Langdale terminal on July 11.

“Customers travelling from Langdale should expect heavy traffic on the 2:05 p.m. and the 4:20 p.m. sailings from Langdale to Horseshoe Bay,” BC Ferries said in a service notice.

The Langdale overflow parking lot will also be used as a staging area for the BC Bike Race riders and vehicles.
