A cross-river passenger service is set to depart from a new pontoon at Gravesend today (Monday)
The new facility at Gravesend’s Town Pier is funded by Kent County Council and Thurrock Council.
More than 90,000 passenger journeys were made last year, and there are hopes the new pontoon will boost numbers even further.
Services run every half hour between 5.30am and 7pm on Mondays to Saturdays.
The pontoon was funded by Gravesham Borough Council, Kent County Council, South East England Development Agency and the European Union’s Interreg IVB North Sea Region Programme.
