Limited car parking available at Lerwick Ferry Terminal
4th August 2004
Approximately 60 long-term car parking spaces are available and these are extremely busy now in the high season, particularly at weekends. Travellers are advised that there is no guarantee of a long-term parking space when they drive to the Terminal.
Earlier in the season a campaign to advise travellers of the restriction met with some success but further “warning” advertisements are now being used to remind drivers that they may not find a space. Problems have been experienced with cars being abandoned in some areas and quaysides are now cordoned off.
Allan Wishart, Chief Executive of Lerwick Port Authority said: “The Authority regrets that it is not possible to provide more long-term parking spaces at Holmsgarth. Where possible, passengers are requested to avoid having to leave their vehicle at the Lerwick terminal while they are away.”
