Scotland’s First Minister, Alex Salmond MSP, was the guest of Breedon Hebrides recently during an official visit to Stornoway Harbour.
His visit marked the start of the £9.5 million works contract awarded to BAM Nuttall and Breedon to upgrade to Stornoway’s Ferry Terminal. This work is in preparation for the arrival of a new £42 million ferry in September this year.
The main contractor on the project is BAM Nuttall and Breedon is carrying out the rockfill, armour stone removal and reinstatement at the terminal, together with car park resurfacing, roundabout construction and duct and drainage works.
Breedon will be on site for 21 weeks, employing around 25 people on the project.
It will supply some 60,000 tonnes of stone, 3,500 tonnes of asphalt and 1,500 cubic metres of ready-mixed concrete.
