Following a significant rainfall in Bundaberg during October and November 2017, Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) is currently undertaking shipping channel restoration works at the Port of Bundaberg.

The subsequent build-up of sediment in the port’s main shipping berth and the inner reach of the shipping channel has severely hindered the berthing and movement of commercial ships in and out of the port, said GPC.

GPC CEO, Peter O’Sullivan, said that the organization will undertake emergency maintenance dredging to restore the depths of the berth pockets and inner reach of the channel.

“It’s important these works go ahead to ensure the operational safety of the harbor. Material will be removed over the next 4 days and deposited at the existing Port of Bundaberg sea disposal site,” the CEO said.

The extent of the emergency maintenance work is limited to the area posing ship navigational risks, said GPC in its release.
