As any island's lifeline, the quality of our transport links will determine more than anything the well-being of our community.

Projects include

Improved and Integrated Transport Links

Maintain a regular lifeline air service between Papay & Kirkwall;

Secure a scheduled year-round passenger ferry service between Papay and Westray to improve economic, education, health and social links between the isles and to access improved transport links to Kirkwall.

Construct a Harbour at the New Pier

Papay Boat Scheme (prioritised)

Provide additional ad-hoc passenger ferry sailings between Papay and Westray to access social and economic opportunities not currently available in Papay.
