All works will be carried out during the evening/overnight to avoid any disruption to the timetabled ferry services.
To protect the contractors and divers, mariners are advised that out with the published times of ferry services the linkspan berth and south steps will be closed to all vessels unless by prior arrangement with the CalMac Port Manager who will consult with the contractor.

Due to the restricted visibility during the scheduled working hours all vessels navigating in the vicinity of Armadale Ferry Terminal at are requested to do so with caution, stay well clear of the pier and regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash.
