According to the latest notice from the Marine Department of Hong Kong, dredging works in the Kwai Tsing Container Basin have been scheduled for the next 18 months.

A safe working area of approximately 100 metres by 100 metres will be established around the grab dredger. The hours of work will be round-the-clock.

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
