SCRABSTER WORK WILL ALLOW HAMNAVOE TO ENTER SERVICE
18 March 03
Work is due to begin soon on the existing pier at Scrabster which will allow NorthLink to bring MV Hamnavoe into service on the Pentland Firth route.
NorthLink chief executive Bill Davidson said: “We anticipate that MV Hamnavoe will be in use on the route from the end of April. The Caledonian MacBrayne vessel MV Hebridean Isles has been utilised as an interim measure.
“Use of the old pier is a short-term solution and will be in operation only until the new pier is ready. A revised timetable for the Hamnavoe service will be introduced from April 21 and bookings for that date and beyond will take account of the new, and improved, arrangements. More details will be announced soon as the construction programme at Scrabster gets under way.”
