St Mary’s Harbour Works Update from Kier Construction

Rients Jan Veldkamp of Kier says they are continuing dredging works to achieve final level, and they anticipate this to take another week to 10 days, that depends on the weather. These works continue 24/7 with deliveries of the dredged material to Porthloo at high tide. This will include off-loading during the night. Kier apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to local residents.

Other works currently on the quay include:

Breaking out the remainder of cobbled walkway.

Casting the foundation slab for the new ticket office

Excavating the pad foundation for the new balcony/covered walkway

Works on the new freight store

Kier has provided a temporary ticket office for the Scillonian III and will provide additional check in space as the sailings get busier.
