Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) is to hold a public meeting to keep islanders up to date with the proposed Brodick Ferry Terminal Repair Works.
The works to the pier and linkspan area, due to begin in March, are essential to safely maintain the ongoing use of the ferry terminal.
In order to minimise the disruption to the lifeline ferry service between Brodick and Ardrossan, and to ensure the safety of the workforce, a large proportion of the works will be undertaken during the night.
A meeting will be held at Brodick Public Hall at 6.30pm on Monday 22nd February 2010 so the ports and harbours team can provide more information on the nature of the works.
They will also reassure villagers regarding the noise and light mitigation measures to be implemented, following extensive consultations with North Ayrshire Council’s Environmental Health Department.
The repairs have been designed by Halcrow Group who will also be overseeing the site works, which will be undertaken by contractor McLaughlin & Harvey over a 17 week period.
