Associated British Ports (ABP) has confirmed that marine works including new berthing fenders and a suspended concrete deck to upgrade the Port of Troon’s East Pier Ferry Terminal have now been completed.

These works, carried out by civil engineering contractor George Leslie, are to support the CalMac ferry service to Ardrossan-Brodick/Campbeltown when it temporarily relocates to Troon as part of the Ardrossan harbour project.

With the marine works complete, the focus at Troon now shifts to the completion of the required shoreside infrastructure, including the installation of a modular terminal building, extensive car parking, check-in lanes and pickup and drop-off areas. All of these works are scheduled to be completed by this summer.

The berth upgrade has been designed to accommodate both of CalMac’s existing ferries and the Glen Sannox-class of vessel, which is due to enter into service next year.
