Mariners are advised that from 08 August 2020, contractors George Leslie Ltd will be undertaking works on the linkspan, lifting dolphins, support piles and pier deck at Coll Ferry Terminal, Loch Eatharna, Isle of Coll.

Weather and coronavirus restrictions permitting works are scheduled to conclude by the beginning of October 2020.

Throughout this time scheduled ferry services will continue operating from the pier linkspan berth, but the pier will be closed to berthing by all other vessels. This will be strictly enforced throughout the period of the works.

Temporary low-level work platforms will be installed below the lifting dolphins and a small safety boat will be in use at all times. On conclusion of works there will be a dive survey.

During any dive project, the contractor’s supervisor and the dive supervisor will liaise with the CalMac Harbour Supervisor and ferry Master. At all relevant times when a diver is in the water Flag A will be displayed and VHF channels 12 and 16 will be monitored.

Until further notification informing harbour users that works have concluded mariners navigating near to Coll Ferry Terminal are advised to maintain a look-out for the workboat that may at times be beneath the pier structure, and for any A Flag being displayed, maintaining a safe distance and passing at minimum speed to reduce vessel wash
