Eastern Fairway Dredging Update

With immediate effect and for a period of approximately 4 months, dredging operations will be carried out within the Eastern Fairway, Marine Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) informs.

These 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.
