#RouteCampaign - A campaign has been launched writes IOM Today to revive an Irish Sea ferry link between Fleetwood, Lancashire and the Isle of Man. 

Fleetwood Weekly News has reported that a petition has been set up by Manx businessman Steve England which has gathered 1,630 signatures.

A Facebook campaign group (which Afloat adds, refers to Steam Packet's recent berthing trials at Holyhead) has also been set up to support the (Fleetwood) move and has attracted 9,237 members.

There are currently questions over the future of passenger ferry sailings between the island and Liverpool with plans to move the Steam Packet’s landing stage from Albert Dock to Waterloo Dock, half a mile away.

Port bosses the Peel Group are in discussions with the Isle of Man government over the £15m plans, which could see work start on the Waterloo Dock site in around 12 months time.
