UK: Lerwick Harbour to Get New Large Jetty

The fishing industry will be the main beneficiary of the next major project in the continuing development of Lerwick Harbour where the construction of a large new jetty at Holmsgarth North is due to begin in the third quarter this year.

It will provide deeper berthing and more working area for the fishing fleet, while the outer arm of the L-shaped jetty will create a dock sheltering a planned new white fish market. The outer arm will also be suitable for offshore industry vessels.

Extending to over 630 metres, with ultimately 10 metres of water alongside, the Holmsgarth North project is scheduled for completion, at an estimated cost of £17 million, at end 2015.

It will be followed by the construction of the market, timetabled to start in early 2016 at Mair’s Quay. The quay was completed last year and has already brought benefits to the fleet. It will be the berthing area used for net repair and working with fishing gear during the construction of the large new jetty.
