Work underway to return pierhead
27 September 2019
Work to return the old pierhead to operational use is well underway at Tiree. Repairs to cracks on the pier approach have commenced, and will be completed ahead of the coming winter months.
Our contractor, George Leslie Ltd has also removed the old pierhead timber fenders from the front of the pier, and cleaned barnacles, mussels and other marine growth from the steel supporting piles. Cleaning has exposed significantly more defects than originally estimated, however, repairs to these piles are now underway. With the increased volume of repair work needed, the project is likely to take longer than planned. An updated timeline will be published in due course.
CalMac will continue to operate ferry services to timetable during these works.
