(Updated below) Due to the requirement of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) for new berthing arrangements, the Kilcreggan passenger ferry has had to implement a revised passenger ferry schedule to Gourock coming into operation on Monday 6th August..
The new scheduled timetable details are here. Note that the new schedule is being progressively added to the website and the Sunday service will continue and will shortly show up on the published timetable. The reason it’s not there now is a simple IT hiccup.
Update: Clydelink have let us know that they have been instructed by the MCA to move to a 4 line mooring system (from 2 lines) during their berthing operations.
They understand that this is part of a broad spectrum change the MCA is introducing and that it will also be approaching other operators on this matter in the very near future.
The obvious impact of mooring with four lines and not two is that it takes longer to berth the boats.
Clydelink have agreed a revised timetable with SPT that will take effect from Monday 6th June.
The company will welcome any feedback or suggestions in respect of the new timetable from their commuter base.
