Mariners are advised that on Monday 27 September 2021, work to undertake essential maintenance on three of the linkspan berth pier fenders at Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal, Firth of Clyde will commence with a daytime inspection conducted from a small workboat and the pier deck.

Prior to starting the inspection, the contractor will liaise with the Harbour Manager and ferry masters to ensure works will not impact on timetabled ferry services. Communications will be maintained using VHF channels 12 and 16.

Thereafter, weather permitting the maintenance works supported by the workboat are scheduled to be undertaken over 4 consecutive nights commencing about 20:00hrs on 28 September and completing each morning before resumption of timetabled ferry services.

Works require that each day one of the three fender assemblies will be removed for a 24hr period. During this time ferry masters are advised to manoeuvre with caution when berthing.

The pier will be closed to berthing by all vessels each day between 20:00 to 06:00 and vessels navigating in the vicinity of Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal at this time are requested to do so with caution, maintain a lookout for the workboat and regulate their speed to minimise the effects of wash.

Further details can be obtained using the contact details below.
