Dredging work at the Bembridge Harbour started on 30th May, with this first phase originally scheduled to take approximately 3 weeks.
Dredging project continued this week and it will last until today, then operations will cease over the weekend whilst Split III returns to base to refuel. Dredging will recommence on Monday along the channel side of the visitors pontoon.
Any works not completed by the end of July will be finished during the Autumn. These works include the dredging of Bembridge Marina and Fisherman’s Pontoon.
