Eastern Fairway Dredging Kicks Off
With immediate effect and for a period of approximately five months, dredging operations will be carried out in the Eastern Fairway area, according to the Hong Kong Government’s Marine Department.
The works will be carried out by a flotilla of vessels including one grab dredger, four hopper barges, three tug boats and one survey boat. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
A working area of approximately 50 meters around the dredger will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the dredger.
Silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be established within the working area.
