The works supervisor will liaise with Masters of ferries and other vessels using the existing pier facility and the local port manager to ensure there is no disruption to scheduled ferry services and a radio watch on VHF channels 12 and 16 will be maintained.

All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Brodick Ferry Terminal are advised to exercise vigilance and pass at minimum safe manoeuvring speed and sufficient distance from the area of works to reduce the risk of damage or injury being caused by the passing vessel’s wash or displacement. Owners and operators of high speed vessels should be particularly vigilant regarding their speed and the wash that can be created.
