Bent Street Boat Ramp Dredging About to Begin

The City of Rockingham has just announced that the maintenance dredging of the Bent Street navigation channel will begin in October, with completion scheduled January 2017.

The works are located within the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park and the Tern Island C Class Nature Reserve.

The sand bypassing maintenance is necessary to prevent sand from the Tern Island sand bar depositing in the Bent Street boat ramp navigation channel.

This will enable the continued safe navigation for vessels travelling between the Bent Street boat ramp and Warnbro Sound.

The works will be undertaken by cutter suction dredge with approximately 25,000m³ of sand being dredged from the end of the Tern Island Sand Bar.

The dredged material will be pumped by submerged pipes 800m east to replenish the foreshores to the east of Donald Drive Boat Ramp adjacent to Safety Bay Road, Safety Bay.

Dredging operational hours will be 6am – 6pm Monday to Friday and 7am – 2pm Saturday.
