Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) has appointed George Leslie Limited to carry out work to the old pierhead at Tiree, as well as repairs to the the main pier approach-way. The work will commence in June 2019.

The project will return the old pierhead back to operational use for third party vessels and provide a lasting repair to the main pier approach which has been damaged repeatedly by recent winter storms.

Passengers will have full access to the ferry service during the works, which will not affect the timetabled services.

CMAL and CalMac will host a drop-in session on Wednesday 15th May at Tiree Ferry Terminal between 2pm and 4pm. Members of the community are invited to visit at anytime to find out further information and ask any questions.

CMAL Senior Civil Engineer, Ruairidh Campbell said: “This project is part of our ongoing programme of harbour upgrades and modifications across our network to support safe and efficient lifeline ferry services to communities around Scotland.”
