West Jurong Channel Dredging Begins

With effect from August 18th 2015 to February 2016, dredging work will be carried out off north west of Jurong island, reported the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

According to the MPA notice, the works will be carried out 24 hours daily, including Sundays and Public Holidays.

The dredging work will be carried out by dredgers held in position by spuds. The dredgers, with hopper barges in attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 50-meters radius centered at the dredger.
