Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) has picked up an award for the extensive upgrade of Brodick Ferry Terminal.

CMAL received the industry accolade at the UK Port Awards 2018 for the completion of the £30 million redevelopment project.  The redevelopment project has completely transformed the terminal, delivering a new pier, an increased marshalling area through reclaimed land and a modern terminal building, with bus stances and parking facilities.  It is the single biggest port infrastructure construction project delivered by CMAL.

Ramsay Muirhead, head of civil engineering, CMAL explained:

“We are absolutely delighted to win this award for Brodick Ferry Terminal.  The upgrades have transformed the harbour for the Isle of Arran, providing 21st century facilities that will benefit ferry users and the local community, providing passengers with a modern ferry terminal, that will offer an improved travel experience and a more resilient ferry service.

“We are committed to an ongoing programme of harbour upgrades and modifications across our network to provide safe and efficient lifeline ferry services to communities around Scotland.”

The redevelopment project at Brodick Ferry Terminal was led by CMAL, with support from Transport Scotland, North Ayrshire Council, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and Coastal Communities Fund.

The awards were introduced at the 10th Annual UK Ports Conference held in London.
