Ferry terminals cash

SHETLAND Islands Council is to receive a further £81,780 in Scottish government funding ring fenced to make inter-island ferry terminal buildings more accessible.

The money is being made available from the ferries accessibility fund, and the SIC is required to match fund the allocation.

A number of other projects in the Western Isles and in Scrabster and on board the Serco NorthLink ferries are also receiving funding, including £1,200 for installing tactile and braille ships floor plans on NorthLink’s passenger vessels and ferry terminals.
