5/13/2019 - Public Consultation on Outer Hebrides Ferry Services - Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance Study

Transport Scotland has commissioned Peter Brett Associates (PBA), now part of Stantec, to carry out a transport appraisal considering the long-term options for the ferry routes to, from and within the Outer Hebrides. The consultants will be hosting public drop-in sessions at the following times and locations:

  • South Uist & Eriskay: Monday 13th May, 16:00-19:30, Southend Community Hall, Daliburgh

  • Harris: Tuesday 21st May, 16:00-19:30, Tarbert Community Centre

These meetings will take the form of a public drop-in session, where we invite members of the public to come along, find out about the emerging study outcomes and, if they wish, have an informal discussion with our team at any point between 16:00-19:30.
Public exhibition material will be available online prior to and after the events.

The exhibition materials from each event can be accessed from the HITRANS website here.
