Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson and MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford have both declared themselves very impressed with the Peterhead Harbour extension, the Smith Embankment, which was officially opened by First Minister Alex Salmond.

Mr Stevenson and Dr Whiteford, along with Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith, were among a wide range of guests representing harbour users, local businesses, contractors involved in the construction of the new quay, and the wider community present for the official opening.

Speaking afterwards, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“To have completed this massive infrastructure project not only on time but also on budget is a tremendous achievement and I congratulate John Wallace and his first class team at Peterhead Port Authority on this achievement.

“I am proud that the Scottish Government recognised the important contribution which the port of Peterhead makes to the Scottish economy and supported this development financially.”

Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford commented:

“This investment in Peterhead moves the port and the town forward and the management at Peterhead harbours are to be commended for the vision they have shown by taking a big decision at what was and remains a very difficult economic climate, but one which will reap dividends in the years to come with the increased capacity of the harbour.”

Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stephen Smith added:

“This has been a great day for Peterhead and ensures that the town’s greatest asset is secure in its pre-eminent position as Europe’s number one fishing port for many years to come.”
