Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Ardrossan Harbour (Redevelopment) (27 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: In my response to the motion debated in the Scottish Parliament last week, on 20 June, I confirmed that “we have been progressing the Ardrossan business case and cost exercise”, and that it is “substantially complete”.—[Official Report, 20 June 2024; c 40.] Transport Scotland is working with partners to finalise the exercise, and any...

Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Ardrossan Harbour (Redevelopment) (27 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Not just Katy Clark but Kenneth Gibson, as the local MSP, as well as others, have repeatedly made the case for Ardrossan, and I absolutely understand that. It is essential to get the substantial investment that is required, and that a robust business case is set out that meets all the requirements for good decision making. I understand the frustrations not just of the people of Arran but of...

Senedd yr Alban: General Question Time: Ardrossan Harbour (Redevelopment) (27 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I take that point very seriously indeed. The success of any development would indeed involve partners working collaboratively together. I reassure the member that we had a very constructive task force meeting in May—I think that it was in May, but I will correct the record on the date—that provided an opportunity for everybody to understand the progress made and the elements that still...

Senedd yr Alban: West Coast Ferry Services (20 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I start by expressing my thanks to the CalMac crew and front-line staff for their work in delivering lifeline services across the network. As the First Minister noted last week, CalMac is a key part of the maritime fabric of the west coast of Scotland. I add my personal thanks to MV Isle of Arran’s master and crew for their speedy and professional response during the recent incident when a...

Senedd yr Alban: West Coast Ferry Services (20 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: With regard to considerations, those discussions will take place between CalMac and the owners of MV Alfred and will include reflection on capacity needs, capability and the return of MV Caledonian Isles. I can assure members that the Government will take all issues very seriously. With regard to MV Alfred and MV Arrow, we have provided additional resilience and capacity across the...

Senedd yr Alban: West Coast Ferry Services (20 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Very briefly.

Senedd yr Alban: West Coast Ferry Services (20 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I have already said in an answer in the chamber that I meet regularly the ferry unions and they have direct input in relation to the award. They raised the issue of crewing levels some time back, and I know that Transport Scotland will make sure that, in preparing for the roll-out of the new ferries, that issue will be addressed. Consideration of the business case and the...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Visitor Road Safety (Highlands and Islands) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: In 2019, Road Safety Scotland, Police Scotland and the British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association developed a campaign targeting people who are not familiar with driving on the left. Leaflets, wristbands and windscreen stickers were provided to car rental companies to distribute to foreign drivers hiring vehicles at airports across Scotland. We also offer advice to motorcyclists, as well...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Visitor Road Safety (Highlands and Islands) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Jamie Halcro Johnston has raised an important and serious issue in relation to unfamiliarity and different vehicles. The motorhomes that are being hired should be identified as a particular target for the campaign that I referred to. On Jamie Halcro Johnston’s point about e-bikes, I note that ferry ports, as well as airports, are important exit points to destinations, so upping...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Ferries (Consultants) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: On complex and high-value projects, specialist advice is required to ensure that Scottish Government contracts fully meet policy objectives and legal requirements. That figure refers to work since 2015, which has included support from specialist technical, legal and financial external advisers, including those with expertise in the maritime sector, in their work both in Scotland and...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Ferries (Consultants) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: The short answer is that I do, they are and we will. We regularly engage with the unions. I have a regular session specifically with the ferry unions, and a direct award has been the subject of discussions with them. Just as important, if not more important, is the detail of that. The content of the next award has been the subject of direct engagement between Transport Scotland officials and...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Ferries (Consultants) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: In recent years, we have delivered record levels of funding for ferry services and improved infrastructure. It was great to see the Loch Indaal being launched at the weekend. Our planned investment is set out in the islands connectivity plan and in the vessels and ports plan, but it relies on significant uplifts in budgets, particularly in relation to capital. We know that the...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Ferries (Consultants) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I am not responsible for Ferguson Marine, but I will relay that question to the Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Gaelic, who has the key responsibility in that area.

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Ferries (Consultants) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Tunnels are part of the strategic transport projects review 2, and Beatrice Wishart will be aware that the Shetland task force is looking at various connectivity issues across the islands, including Shetland Islands Council ferry replacements and tunnels. There has been constructive engagement with the Shetland ferry replacement task force, which has been convened by the Cabinet Secretary for...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Rail Services (Ayr, Girvan and Stranraer) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I am very much aware of the impact that the closure of Ayr station has had on people who live and work in the area and travel to and from Ayr, Maybole, Girvan and Stranraer. As Carol Mochan might be aware, the lead responsibility for Ayr station hotel rests with South Ayrshire Council, while Network Rail has responsibility for the railway station itself. We share the...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Rail Services (Ayr, Girvan and Stranraer) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I recognise that the fire that caused the disruption was not the responsibility of anybody but those who caused the fire, and that the consequences of that are being met by a load of different organisations. Carol Mochan’s point about how we can help with having anchor towns in relation to public sector transport modal shift is an interesting segue from rail, but I get it....

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Rail Services (Ayr, Girvan and Stranraer) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: I appreciate Sharon Dowey’s point, which was also raised by another member during First Minister’s question time. We currently have a discounted proposition with the removal of peak fares, which is to encourage people to use rail more generally, but Sharon Dowey makes the important point that we need to help in publicising and promoting the services in order to encourage more people to...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Road Safety (Local Authorities) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: We are supporting our commitment to make Scotland’s roads safe for all with a record £36 million investment in road safety in 2024-25 to reduce casualties and risks on our roads. That includes the road safety improvement fund, which each local authority can access to improve road safety on their networks. The Scottish Government collaborates with all local authorities via our...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Road Safety (Local Authorities) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Through our road safety framework to 2030 we aim to protect our vulnerable road users and achieve safer road travel in Scotland. As I said in my initial answer, we engage local authorities through the local partnership forums and other road safety groups. Through the road safety improvement fund, we provide financial support as well as road collision data to allow local authorities...

Senedd yr Alban: Portfolio Question Time: Road Safety (Local Authorities) (13 Meh 2024)

Fiona Hyslop: Road safety is a big concern of mine, which is why we have that record level of funding in the road safety and improvement budget. I think that, in his question, the member is referring to local roads. I am responsible for trunk roads and councils will be responsible for local roads. However, his point about active travel incorporating safety measures is well made. I will make sure that, as...
