With reference to previously issued NTM 12/22, mariners are advised that the high-resolution bathymetric survey that had been scheduled for 21 February 2022 was subsequently delayed due to the recent adverse weather. It will now be undertaken by surveyors Aspect Land & Hydrographic Surveys on or about 04 March 2022.
The bathymetric survey will now include the berthing area and approach channel at the disused old ferry pier and the remainder of the statutory area in the vicinity of the new pier at Brodick Ferry Terminal, Brodick Bay, Isle of Arran.
The work is still expected to be completed within 1-day and will be undertaken from survey vessel Coastal Sensor II.
Communication will be maintained with CalMac Ferries Ltd, and others as required via VHF radio throughout all survey works. Surveys will be completed between sailings of the scheduled ferry services to avoid any disruption.
All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Brodick Bay during this time are requested to maintain a lookout for the survey vessel and pass at a safe distance and speed to minimise the effects of wash on the vessel.
Issue of this NTM supersedes NTM 12/22, hence that is now cancelled.
