Breaking ground for new Lerwick Fishmarket
Construction is progressing on Lerwick Port Authority’s £7.6 million replacement fishmarket by local contractor Tulloch Developments Ltd at Mair’s Quay.
The new market will double capacity to 1,600 square metres and provide a range of benefits when completed in early-2020. A total of 30 jobs will be sustained throughout the project. Arch Henderson LLP is responsible for design and project management. The project is backed by the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
