Lochryan Freight Increase

FREIGHT TRAFFIC through the Lochryan ports has more than doubled in the last ten years. And virtually all coach traffic with the North of Ireland use ferries from Stranraer or Cairnryan.

These are just two of the major findings of a 20,000 economic survey carried out by a group set up to press for improvements to the road links to the ferries.

They will be used to press the case with politicians that not only should more money be earmarked for upgrading, but that the timescale should be much shorter than planned.

Consultants DTZ Pieda were commissioned by the North Channel Partnership to produce the study. On Friday, members, including Stena Line and P&O, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Scottish Enterprise Dumfries and Galloway and Larne Borough Council, were shown the draft findings.

Final version is scheduled to be completed by the end of next month.
