Final phase at Corpach
UK: Caol Regeneration Company (CRC), a not-for-profit community organisation, has signed a £1 million contract with the Gael Force Group to construct the third and final phase of its £3.5 million Thomas Telford Corpach Marina (TTCM) project in Corpach, a village north of Fort William in the Scottish Highlands.Gael Force will deliver a 40-berth marina with extra space for small boats, supplying floating breakwaters, pontoons and an all-ability access walkway. Construction work will be carried out at the company’s Corpach boatyard and assembled components floated across to the marina site.
This final phase follows on from the earlier development of a car park, public slipway and facilities building, which were completed during the last two years.
Andy McKenna, chair of TTCM, said: “There were many occasions when we thought this wonderful facility wouldn’t come to fruition. We were faced with huge funding challenges, a complete redesign of the facility buildings and, of course, COVID. But we have come through all of that with really positive plans to contribute something big to the local community and to watersports in the area.”
“The focus of the TTCM board is now on making this a success, a brilliant amenity that everyone can be proud of and that provides a truly excellent service to our customers,” he added.
