PENTLAND FIRTH SERVICE - SUNDAY 6
APRIL 26 March 03
Sunday’s cancellations will allow contractors to install an adjustable platform at the seaward end of the existing linkspan that will ensure the safe loading and discharging of Hamnavoe when she comes into service towards the end of April.
Gareth Crichton, Northlink’s commercial director, said: “We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these essential alterations to the pier at Scrabster. People will be well aware that we are very keen to bring Hamnavoe onto the Pentland Firth route, for which she was specifically designed, as soon as possible. Having looked ahead at scheduled bookings on this route, we concluded that the cancellation of next Sunday’s sailings would minimise the disruption caused to our customers.”
The proposed schedule for next weekend’s
sailings is as follows:
Sunday, April 6
Monday, April 7
NorthLink will be contacting pre-booked passengers and vehicle owners affected by the outlined changes and will endeavour to make alternative arrangements where possible. Should anybody require further details or clarification on the information above, please do not hesitate to ring the NorthLink information line on 0845 6000 449 where staff will be happy to assist in any way they can.
