We are progressing detailed plans for significant investment and upgrade at Port Ellen Ferry Terminal after Transport Scotland approved the findings of a strategic planning study.

Our study identified space constraints at the terminal, including the vehicle marshalling area and terminal building, as well as opportunities to improve port operations and passenger access to and from vessels.  As part of the study, we developed a range of high-level options to address these matters.

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to work with us to develop the outline business case with costs, an assessment of a range of solutions, and a recommend preferred option.  Topographical, bathymetric, geophysical and wave monitoring surveys to inform the next-level business case will be conducted from December 2021.

Engagement with the community is scheduled to take place in spring 2022 to support the development of proposals.  More information will be published here in due course.
