Stranraer Waterfront - Work Begins

WORK IS expected to begin at the end of this month on the breakwater for Stranraer harbour.

The contract which is costing £1,300,000 will be carried out by R J MacLeod and is expected to take seven months to complete.

As part of the Stranraer and Lochryan Waterfront development, the breakwater will protect the western side of the harbour,  allowing for the development of pontoons, which will then see the up to 50 berths created to meet the current demand.

The project follows a series of preparatory projects which have taken place over the  last 20 months including the dredging of the harbour, and the removal of the  redundant Sea Container berthing piles.

Cost is being shared between Dumfries and Galloway Council and Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway, each putting in £350,000 and £600,000 from the European Regional Development Fund. Mairi Henderson of the enterprise company said: 

"This is great news for the Stranraer area, and lets the people of Stranraer and the community see something visible and that the project is really happening."
