Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) will host a series of public exhibition events to share proposals for construction work at the Skye triangle ports of Tarbert, Uig and Lochmaddy.


The upgrade project has now entered the design stage following the completion of masterplans, and detailed designs for the preferred option for each location are being developed.


The events, which will take place the week commencing February 26, are the latest in a series of public consultations. The exhibitions are being undertaken in conjunction with onsite investigations, testing and environmental studies as part of the application process for the required marine licences for works at the ports. They will allow local communities and other interested parties to comment on proposals and work at various stages of the process.


The preferred options being discussed at the meetings in February are:





Ruth McIntosh, principal planning engineer at CMAL said: “Following our public consultations in September, we are pleased to be revisiting the communities now that the project has entered the design phase.

Previous meetings within Uig, Tarbert and Lochmaddy were useful in gathering comments on the various stages of work, and the public exhibitions in February are an opportunity for communities to see how the plans have developed further and have their say on the preferred options.


“We encourage those with an interest in this prospective work to come along to find out more and ask questions.”
