DESIGN Consultant Chosen For Gourock Ferry Terminal Upgrade

25 October, 2022 | Clyde Shipping, Local

CALEDONIAN Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) has appointed engineering firm Mott MacDonald to complete detailed designs for the redevelopment of Gourock ferry terminal.

The work will establish requirements to be included in tender documents, which will be issued to those interested in bidding for the project.

To help inform the plans, land and marine side investigation will take place from 1 November for 12 weeks. These will be co-ordinated with the ferry timetable to minimise disruption.

The terminal redevelopment is part of a wider programme, in partnership with Transport Scotland, CalMac and Argyll and Bute Council, which includes improvements to harbour infrastructure at Dunoon and Kilcreggan, and delivery of new vessels for the Gourock, Dunoon and Kilcreggan routes.

Graeme McGinty, senior project manager at CMAL, said: “Following public engagement, we have established a preferred option for the terminal redevelopment. Mott MacDonald will now work to complete the detailed design for the project, which will be issued as part of the tender for the works.

“This programme is set to deliver a more resilient ferry service for the community, and it’s great to be progressing with the terminal development portion of the project.”
