New barriers on Kilcreggan’s 115 year-old pier have been changed less than a fortnight after being installed.
Argyll and Bute Council, which owns the pier, said last week that the barriers were to ‘marshal passengers’, adding that no decision had been reached on whether pier staff would be made redundant.
Today (Tuesday) contractors removed the barrier fixings from the B-listed pier building.
A further barrier was added next to one of the benches on the other side of the pier building (right), while tape fittings were attached to the end of the pier (below).
Council officials said last week that their own planners had advised the barriers did not need Listed Building consent, but did state that a barrier being fixed to the pier building was ‘regrettable’ and that contractors had been told to rectify this, as happened today.
