Dredging operations, that will be ongoing for the next three months, have begin at New Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter breakwater.
The works will be carried out by two derrick lighters. Two hopper barges, two tugs and one work boat will assist in the works, according to the Marine Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR).
Working area of approximately 50 meters around the derrick lighters will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the derrick lighters. A silt curtain will be established at the immediate area where dredging by grab takes place.
