The new ferry, which will provide the connection between Suriname and French Guiana, is expected to arrive at the end of August 2021. That is what the Surinamese news site Star News writes today. There is first a test period of two months.
The ferry project, including ports on both sides of the connection and research, comes at a price of € 10 million. The funding comes from European funds € 3.5 million, France € 450,000, CNES € 250,000, the local government of French Guiana € 175,000 and Suriname € 625,000, the news site writes.
According to French ambassador Antoine Joly, the ferry connection is part of thinking about the future of the region. The ferry is the first step and the second step is to have a bridge between Suriname and French Guiana, he told Star News.
Last month, Suriname and France held a work meeting in Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni. The construction of a new bridge was also discussed at the time. For now, the focus is on the commissioning of the new ferry.
With a normal boat it takes ten minutes to cross the river:
