With reference to NTM 56/19 Mariners are advised that on 31 October 2019, a crane barge ‘LARA 1’ will arrive on site to commence removal of the existing linkspan deck and subsequent installation of the new deck. It is anticipated that, weather permitting, LARA 1 will be on site until 4 November 2019. She will be on the operational berth when undertaking lifting activities. Outwith this time the vessel will be berthed on the north side of the pier. All lifting activities will be programmed to avoid impact on scheduled Ferry sailings.
