Opening of Brodick Ferry Terminal postponed again


The inauguration of Brodick’s new £30m ferry terminal has been postponed again due to delays in getting the passenger access system signed off. This is the second time the opening has been delayed, and CMAL hopes to set a new date “as soon as possible”.

The new harbour, which includes a two-storey terminal building, an extended passenger access walkway and a greatly enlarged vehicle marshalling area, was originally scheduled to open on 23 October, but as a mark of respect for Arran dignitary Lady Jean Fforde, who died shortly beforehand, the event was postponed until 27 November.

Now Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL) has been forced to announce a further postponement due to issues relating to the passenger access system. According to a CMAL statement, We are working closely with Adelte, the manufacturer, to find a solution as a matter of priority so that we can get the terminal up and running and open to the public as soon as possible.

Work to transform the harbour began on site in January 2016.
