Stena Line commence work on Port Ryan terminal
Stena Line has commenced work on a £200m ferry terminal at Loch Ryan, two miles north of Cairnryan.

The terminal will replace existing facilities at Stranraer and see introduction of two new high speed ferries, reducing crossing times between Scotland and Northern Ireland by 25mins.

Some locals are uneasy about the impact on the existing harbour area but local politicians are optimistic that a “dramatic redevelopment” of Stranraer Harbour could transform the town into a marine leisure destination..

As a frequent traveller on the N.Ireland/ Scotland ferries for over 30 years, i welcome improved facilities, but I cannot understand why the main connecting route - A75- has not been upgraded to match. is there going to be further improvements in the near future to make this a safer & faster route
