Views sought on proposed upgrade at Ardrossan Harbour
A consultation on proposals to develop the landside facilities at Ardrossan Harbour is to be held in Brodick on April 13.
North Ayrshire Council is working with a group of project partners - Transport Scotland, CMAL, Peel Ports Group, CalMac and the Arran Ferry Committee - to complete a comprehensive upgrade and redevelopment of the Ardrossan Ferry Terminal.
The draft plans focus on the new terminal building, Passenger Access System and parking and marshalling facilities to improve operations at Ardrossan to meet the additional capacity provided by the MV Glen Sannox.
The main landside works under discussion in the consultation include:
- Development of a modern-two-storey Terminal Building replacing the existing terminal
- A new Passenger Access System (PAS)
- Upgrading of both the marshalling and car park areas
A separate consultation will be progressed separately on interim service arrangements for the temporary operation of the service from Troon once the Glen Sannox vessel comes into operation.
The deadline for the online consultation has been extended and the proposals will be available to view until April 15.
Any views submitted during the consultation will then be considered before tender documents are published. A timetable for the implementation is not yet available.
