Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) is the proud winner of infrastructure project of the year, picked up at this year’s UK Ports Awards, following completion of the £30m upgrade to Brodick Ferry Terminal. This was the largest ever infrastructure investment to be undertaken by Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL), alongside assistance from funding partners: Transport Scotland, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT), North Ayrshire Council and the Coastal Communities Fund.
Development of the new terminal has completely transformed the gateway to Arran, bringing with it significant social and economic benefits to the island. The new two-berth pier offers significant opportunities for Ayrshire & Arran’s £200m* tourism industry as it is able to accommodate cruise liners as well as increased ferry traffic.
Other improvements for passengers, include:
- The new “airport-style” experience affords passengers more comfort, with a 120-seater departure lounge and a covered walkway facilitating safe and dry boarding from the terminal building
- New parking facilities formed (through reclaimed land) and improved accessibility via the introduction of drop-off & pick-up points
Arthur McKay is proud to have delivered all the mechanical, electrical, public health and data installations for this award-winning infrastructure project.
