Congratulations to the winner of the Infrastructure award at the RICS Awards grand final: Wemyss Bay Pier Walkway, Wemyss Bay (Scotland).

Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited, (CMAL) owns the Grade A Listed historic timber walkway which connects the Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal to Wemyss Bay Station.

CMAL carried out a comprehensive upgrade and refurbishment of the existing Grade A Listed timber walkway, which dates back to 1903. This included an extensive refurbishment of the vehicle linkspan, partial demolition and reconstruction of the existing 1970s load-restricted pier and renewal of pier fendering.

Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal serves the Isle of Bute and the service carries approximately 675,000 passengers and 180,000 vehicles each year.

RICS judges said the 1903 walkway has been beautifully restored to its former glory whilst modern building techniques were successfully deployed to ensure future longevity of the pier, and improve the vessel fendering system.
