Project update

9 March 2020

The Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG) study to consider the long-term infrastructure requirements at Armadale and Mallaig ferry terminals is nearing completion. We are planning to publish a copy on our website by the end of March.

CMAL is progressing towards developing plans for Armadale Ferry Terminal. The next step is to develop and appraise a number of options in further detail and prepare a business case. This will consider economic, environmental and social factors and legislative requirements to identify a preferred solution to progress to design phase.  We will engage with stakeholders throughout the process, hosting public meetings and sharing information on the CMAL website.

Public exhibition material and survey

A copy of the presentation material used at the public drop-in sessions  is now available to view online:

We welcome your feedback on the content and invite you to complete a short online survey, where you can also share any questions or concerns you have about the upgrade plans.  You can complete the survey here. Please send any responses by 18th of April.
