Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) is looking for a contractor to replace a linkspan at Oban ferry terminal.
The linkspan, which is like a drawbridge, is used to transport vehicles on and off, predominately, the Mull ferry service.
CMAL has published an ‘invitation to tender’, which will see construction take place in February and March next year.
Ruairidh Campbell, senior civil engineer at CMAL, said: ‘This contract is part of our ongoing programme of harbour upgrades and modifications across our network. Interested suppliers can find out more and ask questions at our supplier information day later this month.
‘We are always mindful of the impact of harbour upgrade work on ferry services and the people who use them. While berth one will be closed for the duration of the work to replace the linkspan, all services will run from berth two.’
