The Oban Times - - Front Page -

FERRY op­er­a­tor CalMac con­firmed it signed the for­mal con­tracts with Trans­port Scot­land and Cale­do­nian Mar­itime As­sets Ltd (CMAL) on Mon­day to op­er­ate fer­ries and har­bours on the west coast of Scot­land.

CalMac was an­nounced by Trans­port Scot­land as the suc­cess­ful bid­der for the Clyde and He­bridean ferry ser­vices con­tract in May, and it also won a sep­a­rate, but linked, con­tract to de­liver har­bour op­er­a­tions at 24 ports on be­half of CMAL. This is the first time the ferry and har­bour op­er­a­tions have been split in this way.

CalMac man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Martin Dorch­ester said: ‘ Now that the con­tracts have been signed, we can start to share in­for­ma­tion with staff and cus­tomers about our am­bi­tious plans to trans­form the ex­pe­ri­ence of ferry trav­ellers dur­ing the life­time of the con­tract.’
