Temporary relocation of Ardrossan/Brodick - Campbeltown service to Troon
CalMac seeking community views on temporary relocation of Ardrossan/Brodick - Campbeltown service to Troon
Due to the introduction of new vessels and related infrastructure upgrade requirements at Ardrossan, the CalMac service will temporarily relocate to Troon in Summer 2023, when MV Glen Sannox is expected to enter service. CalMac will be conducting initial community consultations to discuss the planned move and the potential timetables which may be in place for around two years. These sessions will take place in Ardrossan, Brodick and Campbeltown. CalMac invite local stakeholders, businesses and communities to attend and view proposals and provide feedback.
Consultations will be held in the following locations on the undernoted dates and times:
Ardrossan, Whitlees Community Centre (KA22 7DT), 23 August 2022 at 13:00-15:30
Campbeltown, Town Hall (PA28 6AB), 24 August 2022 at 13:00-15:30
Brodick, Orimidale Sports Pavillion (KA27 8BY), 25 August 2022 at 13:00-15:30 and 16:30-18:30
Robert Morrison, Operations Director for CalMac, said: "We look forward to the delivery of new vessels to help improve our services to island and remote communities across the west coast. We recognise that the move from Ardrossan Harbour may be challenging for some of our customers, and it is important that we hear their views. I urge community and local stakeholders to attend these sessions so that we can consider the needs of all our customers."
