Motorways of the Sea set to launch

The first ‘Motorways of the Sea’ ferry service between France and Spain is set to be launched tomorrow. Operated by LD lines, the new thrice weekly crossings start from Montoir-de-Bretagne (Nantes-Saint-Nazaire port, France) and will take 14 hours. “This new link will provide both tourist passengers and freight customers with a unique landbridge between the UK and Northern Spain, crossing via our Portsmouth - Le Havre or Newhaven - Dieppe routes for example, and then onward travel to Spain via Nantes-Saint-Nazaire,” said LD Lines’ Managing Director, Christophe Santoni. “Motorways of the Sea” is an EU funded programme for projects that move freight traffic from roads to sea, rail and inland waterways.”
