Abell Point Marina dredging project is currently underway. The project started few days ago after completing the first tests successfully.
The dredging team have been working hard over the past three months to profile a dredging process that will effectively target high areas areas across the marina that have previously caused access issues on a low tide.
In targeting 20% of high areas across the marina, the dredging team believe that it can rectify 80% of the problem areas allowing greater access to berths for deeper draft vessels.
The dredging project will first target high areas in O/P arm, M/N arm, L arm and around the fuel wharf before scoping out a full maintenance schedule of the marina. The project is predicted to last for 6 – 8 months with all dredge material being pumped into the retention pond to develop a community parkland for marina customers to enjoy with regular events planned for this area.
