Lerwick Port Authority has contracted local-based Tulloch to build a new jetty at Holmsgarth North to provide deeper berthing and more working area for the fishing fleet. The outer arm of the L-shaped jetty will create a dock to shelter a planned new white fish market. The outer arm will also be suitable for berthing offshore industry vessels.

Site set-up will start before the end of the year and the main works will begin in January. Completion is scheduled for autumn 2016.

The jetty has been designed by civil engineers Arch Henderson, who will also project manager the construction. The jetty will extend to 800 metres, with ultimately 10 metres of water alongside.
