Picture of the Day: Lerwick’s New Pier

Lerwick’s Holmsgarth North project reached a major milestone recently with completion of the sheet pile walls of the new pier, undertaken by contractor Tulloch Developments.

The new jetty is already providing a significant shelter improvement.

The overall project is due for completion one year from now.

This photo, taken by John Coutts and published by the Lerwick Port Authority today, shows a good impression of the 805 meters (half an imperial mile) of quay walls that are now installed.

The new jetty 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 berthing offshore industry vessels.
