Ardrossan Harbour upgrade project

We are working alongside partners Transport Scotland, Calmac, CMAL and Peel Ports on a major project to redevelop Ardrossan Harbour.

The Ardrossan Harbour task force is working to secure a preferred design option, in order to improve facilities, operations and the resilience of the Ardrossan-Brodick ferry service.

Our vision involves creating 21st century transport hubs for Ardrossan and Brodick. Through improved services, the hubs will offer real value to:

  • users
  • communities
  • businesses

The connectivity and quality of the local environment will support the needs of local communities by providing an:

  • efficient
  • reliable
  • comfortable

experience for all ferry users.

We believe that the improvement works at Ardrossan Harbour will act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of the Ardrossan area. For an up-to-date look at the proposals for Ardrossan Harbour, you can have a look at the project overview (PDF, 966kb)

To find out more about the project, why not read our Frequently Asked Questions (Word, 19kb)(last updated August 2019).

You can also view some of the key landmarks in the project as well as our future plans (Word, 51kb)(last updated August 2019).

Members of the public were shown the Initial Engagement & Communities update plan (PDF, 4.35mb) during an engagement session in October. Further consultation sessions are planned once design work commences.

To find out the outcome of that initial engagement, view our consultation document (PDF, 3.83mb).

Peel Ports, who are responsible for the overall management of the marine infrastructure and landside aspects of the project, have appointed a team of consultants to assist with the project delivery. View details of the project team and the scope of their work.

We aim to provide regular updates about the Ardrossan Harbour project on a regular basis. Feel free to share our poster (PDF, 1.25mb) to let other people know how to keep up to date.
