Ferry services thrown a lifeline with £3.5M boost

Seeing double. The MV Clansman and the MV Caledonian Isles in Brodick.

Scotland’s lifeline ferry services will receive £3.5 million from the Scotish Government to reduce the risk of vessels breaking down and to return them to service quicker if they do. This additional funding will tackle obsolescence which would otherwise take the ferry out of service for extended periods and will allow for a programme of upgrades to be undertaken during this winter’s overhaul period when replacement parts for obsolete equipment will be procured. The move was announced by Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity Michael Matheson MSP during the Scottish Cabinet visit to Arran on Monday.
