Montrose Harbour Dredging About to Start
Dredging operations are about to begin in the inner Montrose Harbour and navigation channel.
The dredger Shearwater will perform the job with regular trips to Lunan Bay and Montrose Beach.
“Mariners are requested to navigate with caution and give the dredger Shearwater as wide a berth as possible at all times,” said the Harbour Master, Captain Brian Forrest.
According to Forrest, the dredger will make regular trips to Lunan Bay and a number of trips to the beach near to the Golf Links.
“Regular dredging signals will be exhibited day and night by the dredger. Vessels entering/leaving the port are to contact Port Control on Channel 12 for instructions,” said Forrest.
