Bluebridge ferry Santa Regina is back on the Cook Strait run this morning following a 12-day layoff caused by a port engine camshaft problem.

Repair work was undertaken at its Glasgow Wharf berth after spare parts were manufactured by a Lower Hutt engineering firm Acme Engineering.

The ferry successfully underwent sea trials in Wellington Harbour last night.

Bluebridge spokeswoman Wendy Pannett said Santa Regina and Straitsman would today return to their normal sailing roster of two return trips per day between Wellington and Picton.

What do you make of the proposed conference centre/hotel for Wellington?

Great - a big boost for the local economy

Nice - one of many projects needed

Argh - a white elephant in the making

First priority should be airport runway extension

Not sure at all
