Shipping services resumed, joint response mechanism on agenda
Date:2018-02-26 Readers:

Zhanjiang's New Hai'an Port resumed shipping services on Feb 23. Joining two other ports north of the Qiongzhou Straits, it began to assist passengers and vehicles stranded in Hainan province due to heavy fog.

Since Feb 15, ferry services across the straits have been suspended 14 times, which lasted for over 70 hours and has been the biggest disruption since 1951. This led to thousands of travelers and vehicles being trapped on the island.

Things got even worse when Hainan freighter Xinying F069 sank after colliding with passenger ferry Haikou 9 on Feb 22. The unexpected accident blocked the shipping lanes off New Hai'an Port in Xuwen county.

Zhanjiang Maritime Safety Administration worked overnight to locate the sunken freighter and clear it from waterways. One-way navigation was resumed the same day and shipping services of both directions went back to normal on Feb 23.
