Wemyss Bay Pier Refurbishment – Progress Update No 3 8 Jan 2016:

Key Information: Project start 1 Oct 2015 and planned completion 18 March 2016

Progress to Date
Following completion of demolition activities at Wemyss Bay, the contractor is progressing with the construction of the new concrete pier roundhead and fendering system. At Inchgreen quayside, refurbishment of the vehicle linkspan is also progressing.
The contractor has suffered some periods of disruption due to high winds during December. Of particular note was the impact of “Storm Desmond” in early December which caused significant damage to the linkspan encapsulation at Inchgreen (effectively a sealed tent to provide a controlled working environment for steelwork preparation and painting). Despite this, the work is still programmed to complete before Easter.

 Next Public “drop in” session will be held at Rothesay on 21st January (Green Tree Room, Moat Centre, 18-00 hours).
