Dredging work is well underway at Eyemouth Harbour with the hopper barge ‘MV Shearwater’ and dredging unit ‘Forth Reclaimer’ busy within the harbour.
Mariners are advised that temporary restrictions to vessel movements may occur and they should navigate with caution in the vicinity. In particular they should ensure that the dredging vessels are not operating in the entrance (‘canyon’) before committing to enter or depart.
Dredging operations are expected to last until mid July 2014.
