Ker­rera slip­ways work

The Oban Times - - News -

FROM Mon­day (Jan­uary 18) un­til Fri­day Fe­bru­ary 26, a pedes­trian only ser­vice will be in op­er­a­tion to Ker­rera to al­low Cale­do­nian Mar­itime As­sets Ltd (CMAL)’s con­trac­tor, Ge­orge Les­lie Ltd, to carry out ex­ten­sion works to both the Ker­rera and Gal­lanach slip­ways.

The is­land of Ker­rera is set to ben­e­fit from a sig­nif­i­cant upgrade to its ferry berths. Around £1.7 mil­lion will be in­vested in the con­struc­tion of a new break­wa­ter and the ex­ten­sion of the slip­way. The pro­ject also in­cludes an ex­ten­sion to the Gal­lanach slip­way at the main­land end of the cross­ing.

CMAL’s Pro­ject Man­ager, Ruairidh Camp­bell, said: ‘We have un­der­taken ex­ten­sive lo­cal con­sul­ta­tion and have planned this clo­sure to avoid the busy tourist and farm­ers mar­ket sea­sons. We ask that any ve­hi­cle travel to or from the is­land and large de­liv­er­ies are made prior to start of this pedes­trian only ser­vice.’
