Swansea Channel Maintenance Dredging Set for Next Week

Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter and Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, said today that the Swansea Channel maintenance dredging work is due to start next week.

The main goal of this cleanup scheme is to reduce the size of a sand shoal that reformed in the navigation channel near the southern entrance to Swan Bay at the Swansea Channel.

Removing sand from the shoal will take about a week and should improve boating access prior to and during the busy Christmas holiday period,” Mr MacDonald said.

The NSW Government has engaged local contractor Hunter Wharf and Barge to conduct the work.”

“The removal of the sand is planned for mid-December to ensure a wide range of vessels can access the waterway over the holiday season,” Mr MacDonald said.

The NSW Government is also conducting a sand tracing study of Swansea Channel to help gain a better understanding of sand movement between the bridge and drop-over into Lake Macquarie.
