A significant amount of dredging works will be undertaken in the Raby Bay areas during the next six months, according to the Department of Transport and Main Roads – Maritime Safety Queensland.
These dredging operations, set to last from March 6 until September 30, will be conducted in the approaches to Ross Canal and the channel towards the William Street Boat Ramp, near Volunteer Marine Rescue Raby Bay.
The Ken Harvey, Port of Brisbane Corporation’s owned clam bucket dredger, will be in charge of these cleanup works, supported by the work boats Turtle, Sea Lion and Frank Wilson.
To assist dredging operations, beacons in the approaches to the William Street boat will be temporarily replaced with buoys, the notice said.
The dredger will deploy multiple mooring wires across and along the channel to safely position itself, displaying the designated shapes and signals indicating the safe side for passing.
