Date of issue: 23 March 2012
Mariners are advised that following completion of fender replacement at Oban Ferry Terminal, contractor North West Marine Ltd is now carrying out repair works to Oban’s South Pier, adjacent to slipway.
The programme of works will commence on Friday 23rd March and is anticipated to be complete by Tuesday 27th March 2012.
The works consist of inspections & repairs to the sheet piling at the interface with the concrete slipway and will predominantly involve underwater diving operations undertaken by divers accessing the water from the slipway.
All operational working areas will be appropriately marked utilising Flag A “Diving Operations” at all times and will not impinge upon scheduled ferry services.
All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Oban Harbour South Pier must do so with caution and regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash accordingly. Any persons seeking to use the slipway must liaise with North West Marine Ltd at the location and allow sufficient time for divers to exit the water if required.
