Abell Point Dredging Project Well Underway
A full scale dredging program at Abell Point is entering its final phase, with significant progress already achieved on the project.
By the start of the cruising season in May, the program will have addressed tide access areas in various locations in the south marina including O/P arm and Superyacht berths in L arm.
Dredge spoil is being pumped up into a sealed retention pond which will be developed into a community parkland before the end of the year, reported the Abell Point Marina.
The dredging program is anticipated to have minimum impact on the access to berths however intermittent relocation of the dredging barge and equipment may cause some short term access issues.
Over the next four months, the dredging team are committed to maximizing all tide access in historically low areas and will be a key development for the busy season expected from May of this year.
