Active NTM 06/17

It has been noted that vessels have been berthing overnight on the pier under construction at Brodick Ferry Terminal, Isle of Arran.

With reference to NTM 03/17 all mariners are reminded that to ensure safety of navigation and avoid causing damage to the structure under construction or to the unauthorised vessels, unless in an emergency situation only those vessels engaged in the works are permitted to berth on the structure or should enter the works area as at times it may be fouled with submerged chain, wires and anchors, insecure piles and associated vessels and barges.
