In order to maximize the effectiveness of security efforts with subject to security, would you kindly support our request for all soft sided loaded freight units to be properly closed and sealed prior to delivery to terminal. This will not stop fraud and illegal migration but it will rule out some of the risks posed.

Could you please advise your staff and contractors that we will be implementing security checks fully on your arriving units as from 1st of August.

Please note should we receive units that are unsealed we will make every effort to assist in the sealing. However under certain circumstances your unit could be refused entry to terminal.

General Information

**Road Closures A 77 Scotland

The A77 will be closed from Cairnryan (roundabout at Stena Line Ferry Terminal) to Girvan (Shallochpark roundabout) between the hours of 22:00 until 06:00 each night from Monday 25th for 5 x nights. Diversions will be in place.

For full information please visit www.scotlandtranserve.co.uk

**Road Works - M2 Belfast bound off-slip at Junction 5 Templepatrick

Road works will commence shortly that will affect the M2 Belfast bound off-slip at Junction 5 at Templepatrick, which would be used by traffic going to Larne.

The off slip will be closed from 02/02/15.

The contractor will place a VMS sign between junctions 6 and 7. The wording can be altered as required but will state the following –

• JUNCTION 5 OFF SLIP CLOSED AHEAD
• FOR TEMPLEPATRICK / LARNE USE JUNCTION 6
• FOLLOW DIVERSION

The construction of the Belfast to Larne A8 Dual Carriageway scheme commenced in Autumn 2012 and is progressing at a steady speed. Traffic is now flowing on approximately 5km of newly constructed sections of road with speed restrictions of 40mph in place. Although there are fully trained traffic marshals patrolling the site on a daily basis to ensure there is a free flow of traffic at all times, customers travelling to the Port of Larne are advised to allow some extra time.

The completed works are on target for Spring 2015, and will provide an enhanced road to Larne Harbour, with shorter journey time from Belfast. The road will not feature any roundabouts, allowing for an uninterrupted journey of 14.5km.
