Scotland: Clyde and Hebrides ferry contract extension

May 31, 2024

The Scottish Government has extended the current contract for the Clyde and Hebrides Ferry Services (CHFS) by one year. This extension allows more time to complete the due diligence process necessary for the proposed direct award to CalMac. The final decision on the contract award is pending further complex considerations. The Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Fiona Hyslop, emphasized the need for thoroughness and assured that a further update will be provided to Parliament later in the year.
