Ferry passengers who use Gourock to Dunoon services are being invited to complete an online survey to share their experiences and attitudes to help inform future decision making for vessels and harbour infrastructure.

All ferry users, no matter how often they use services and whether they travel with CalMac or Western Ferries, are encouraged to share their views.

The survey is available online at https://rb.gy/ak1zv9

Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) has commissioned the survey to inform the work of the Gourock Harbour Infrastructure & Vessels Project, which aims to deliver a modern, reliable and resilient lifeline passenger ferry service between Gourock and Dunoon.  The project is being delivered in partnership by CMAL, Transport Scotland, CalMac and Argyll & Bute Council and covers the redevelopment of Gourock Ferry Terminal, minor works to harbour infrastructure at Dunoon and delivery of two new vessels.

Kevin Hobbs, chief executive at CMAL, said:

“The views and experiences of ferry passengers are very important to us during the planning stages of this project.  We want to hear from as many people as possible.

“We recognise that everyone is experiencing a challenging and uncertain time with the coronavirus pandemic.  However, we are keen to continue with as much work as we can to support Scotland’s ferries and harbours, and this survey can be completed by passengers from the comfort of their homes.”

The Gourock Harbour Infrastructure & Vessels Project is in the very early stages of development.  A reference group involving Dunoon Community Council, Inverclyde Community Council, Argyll and Inverclyde Councillors, HiTrans and SPT has been established to facilitate community engagement throughout the project.  Information and regular updates will be published on the CMAL website.
