Brodick Ferry project scoops national infrastructure accolade

THE £30 million Brodick Ferry Terminal redevelopment project has been honoured with a national infrastructure award.

Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) picked up the Infrastructure Project of the Year prize  at the UK Port Awards 2018 for the scheme, which involved the creation of a new pier, increased marshalling area through reclaimed land and a modern terminal building, with bus stances and parking facilities.

Ramsay Muirhead, head of civil engineering at CMAL said, “We are absolutely delighted to win this award for Brodick Ferry Terminal.  The upgrades have transformed the harbour for the Isle of Arran, providing 21st century facilities that will benefit ferry users and the local community, providing passengers with a modern ferry terminal, that will offer an improved travel experience and a more resilient ferry service.

“We are committed to an ongoing programme of harbour upgrades and modifications across our network to provide safe and efficient lifeline ferry services to communities around Scotland.”

The redevelopment project was led by CMAL, with support from Transport Scotland, North Ayrshire Council, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and Coastal Communities Fund.

The awards were announced at the 10th Annual UK Ports Conference in London.
