If the T&T Express, which is the only vessel servicing the sea bridge, breaks down, there will be no passenger ferry to service the islands.

The T&T Spirit which has been in dry dock for more than three months is in need of a major overhaul.

It will now cost tax payers more than double the original cost to fix the vessel.

And the port chairman blames it on a lack of maintenance.
