Project: Loch Ryan Ferry Port Waiting Canopy
Client: Mclaughlan & Harvey Ltd
Products: Bespoke Waiting Canopy
The new £200 million Stena line ferry port in Loch Ryan was built to replace the previous facility in Stranraer. As part of the development, a new bus terminal required a walkway and waiting canopy and Bailey Streetscene were approached by Mclaughlan & Harvey to manufacture and install the structure.
At over 90 metres in length, the considerable structure needed detailed structural calculations which took into account the extreme weather conditions of the area. Only two weeks after installation the structure withstood winds of 80 to 100mph during a Met office Red alert weather warning. Bailey Streetscene relied on their considerable expertise in Canopy design and manufacture to ensure that the walkway not only matched the clients design requirements, but was also manufactured to last.
The project was completed without issue as Bailey Streetscene adapted to changing varying weather conditions throughout, site design changes and strict time constraints. The Walkway now provides hundreds of passengers with shelter from the elements whilst waiting at the port.
