CalMac seeking community views

15 December 2021

Due to infrastructure upgrades being undertaken by The Highland Council, the harbour will be closed for a period of 21 weeks from 12 September 2022 until 03 February 2023.

Consultations will be held on the following dates/times and locations:

  • Benbecula, Balivanich Hall: 15 December 2021 at 5.30-8pm
  • Uig Village Hall: 16 December 11am-1pm
  • Tarbert Community Centre: 16 December 6-8pm

Uig, Tarbert and Lochmaddy harbours are all being upgraded to replace life expiry infrastructure and to enable CalMac to deliver an effective service when new vessel 802 is introduced into service.

Operations Director Robert Morrison said: “The upgrades will deliver many improvements, but the closure of a port means that we have to carefully plan alternative timetables.

“We recognise that the closure will be challenging for our customers, and for this reason, community views are extremely important. I would encourage people to attend the consultation events and to let us know what they think.”
