The project provided stepped berthing platforms to accommodate passenger-only services at varying states of the tide adjacent to the existing vehicle linkspan berth which had previously been used for the smaller, passenger ferry services.
12 x 762mm diam x 25m long tubular piles, were installed to support new open-mesh flooring platforms, with an additional 12 x 908mm diam tubular fender piles along the front complete with rubbing strips, hooks and shackle points for vessel mooring.
A temporary, piled crane platform was created to enable the works to be constructed from the landward side, dispensing with the need for floating plant. Additional landward works around the terminal included new handrailing, barriers, walkways and passenger shelters as well as road surfacing renewal.
The overall project involves the off-site fabrication and installation of a new linkspan structure at Oban Ferry Terminal for client Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMal).
