Maintenance dredging project at Bandy Creek Boat Harbor, located approximately 10 kilometers to the east of Esperance, is set to begin on Sunday, 23 April, the Government of Western Australia’s Department of Transport just announced.

“Maintenance dredging will remove some 60,000 cubic meters of sand from the harbor entrance over a three month period,” the official press release said.

The Bandy Creek boat ramp will be temporarily unavailable between 9.00 am and 12.00 pm for the launch of the dredge vessel Cooper II, according to the department.

“Boat users are advised to use the Esperance Beach town boat ramp as an alternative launch during this period. The Bandy Creek boat ramp is expected to be available again after 12.00 pm,” the announcement stated.

Dredging activity is undertaken every two years to ensure all commercial fishing, charter industry and recreational vessels have safe access to Bandy Creek Boat Harbor.
