The Port of Banff remains on schedule for the May opening after further work progresses.

The long-term project at the port has seen repairs made to the eastern quay and railway pier to ensure structural stability for the future.

Aberdeenshire Council’s Harbor Service has provided the latest working update.

A spokesperson said: “James Forbes and his team have done a fantastic job removing the inner and outer dams from the port.

“They’re recovering the rest of the grouping rocks and the larger armored rocks from the main pass.

“Keith Simpson’s construction workers are making great progress with moving the deck on the East Quay and are now about halfway there.

Aspect Land and Hydrographics will conduct a marine survey during the last week of March.

“This will cover the entire port before the arrival of the Wyre Sands rig at the beginning of April.

“This survey will give us an indication of how much dredging material actually needs to be removed.

“The dams have already been removed to become a solid base in those areas.

“Everything is on schedule for the May opening.”
