A ferry pier in North West Scotland has been extended by 35 m in one night.
Contractor RJ McLeod carried out the scheme on Ullapool pier last weekend.
The work was necessary to allow the infrastructure to accommodate the larger ferry that will soon be taking passengers from the town to the Isle of Lewis.
RJ McLeod used a floating concrete caisson, built on the River Clyde and towed to Ullapool three weeks ago, to get the job done without disrupting the ferry schedule.
The caisson was positioned, sunk into place, and ballasted with water on to a previously prepared concrete base.
RJ McLeod is now grouting the gap between caisson and base, and will replace the ballast water with rock before casting the deck slab over the internal cells.
