ESSENTIAL maintenance will be carried out on the linkspan at the Laxo ferry terminal later this month.

The work will take place over the weekend of 20 to 23 May, starting after the 6.30pm ferry to Whalsay on the Friday.

From this time, all ferry sailings over the weekend will operate to and from the Vidlin ferry terminal, running to the regular ferry timetable.

Ferry services will resume as normal on Monday 23 May, with the first scheduled ferry sailing to Laxo from Whalsay at 7.10am.

This planned timetable of work is weather dependent.

These works form part of the council’s ongoing programme of linkspan refurbishment, which has also seen previous work at Skerries, Symbister and Vidlin ferry terminals.

All passengers should be aware that there are no designated parking facilities at the Vidlin ferry terminal.

Shetland Islands Council said it would like to apologise for any inconvenience to passengers.
