For the next six months, dredging operations will be carried out at New Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter, reported a few days ago the Marine Department of Hong Kong.
The works will be carried out by two derrick lighters. Two hopper barges, two tugs and one work boat will assist in the works. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
According to the notice, a 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.
Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
