Eight National Park piers and pontoons are to share in a £170,000 upgrade.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority has announced that eight pontoons and piers on Loch Lomond will undergo improvement work in February 2018.
The work will ensure the future of the structures so they can continue to be used for many years to come. The piers and pontoons which will be upgraded are:
The repairs started on Monday 19 February 2018 and the work should be completed by the end of March 2018 so the piers and pontoons are fully operational for the start of the summer season.
Further improvement work is also being carried out at Tarbet with resurfacing of the carpark starting on Sunday 4 March 2018 and lasting for approximately 9 days. During this time the carpark will be closed however alternative parking is available at Tarbet Hotel.
Simon Jones , Director of Conservation and Visitor Operations at Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park said: ‘We are investing in the future of our piers and pontoons and resurfacing the carpark in Tarbet which will improve facilities for the local community and visitors.
“Whilst the repairs are taking place we will work closely with contractors to ensure minimal disruption and we don’t anticipate widespread closures of any of the piers or pontoons. During the work the piers can still be used although extra precaution should be taken when maintenance work is being carried out.
“We are also working with local communities and businesses to keep them updated on the works as they get underway and information will be available on our website and social media.”
