There was a high level Dept of Transport visit to Penzance on 14 Sep. which was hosted by the Project Team  and members of the Route Partnership.  The visitors observed a departure and an arrival of the ferry.  Reportedly questions probed the costings for the project in significant detail.

Funding of the project appears to be the last major remaining obstacle to be overcome.  The Cancellor of the Exchequer is due to announce the results of the Comprehensive Spending Review on 20 Oct 2010.  The Dept of Transport states that it "would expect to be able to announce at some point after that date which schemes will be able to proceed and which will not".
