A public meeting will be held on Harris next week to provide an update on the upgrade to Tarbert ferry terminal.
Last month, Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns the harbour, awarded a £14.3million contracto to civil engineering and building contractor RJ McLeod Ltd to carry out the works.
Now they will host the drop-in session at Tarbert Community Centre on October 29 from 4pm-7pm to give people the chance to find out about what is planned and ask questions.
The project is part of the Skye triangle infrastructure programme, which involves significant harbour upgrades at Tarbert, Lochmaddy and Uig. The work is designed to improve and modernise harbour facilities and prepare the way for new vessels.
Work is already under way at Tarbert and is expected to be completed by spring. CalMac will continue to operate ferry services during the works.
Brian Sydney, senior civil engineer CMAL, said: “Work is now under way at Tarbert and the main contractor is on site to begin the schedule of works. This is an ideal time for a community meeting, which will allow locals and ferry users to ask questions about the work. We encourage people to come along to the meeting to find out more about construction over the coming months.
“The project represents significant investment in the island’s transport infrastructure. Once completed, passengers travelling to and from Tarbert will benefit from a much-improved harbour and ferry experience.”
