With immediate effect and for a period of approximately 5 months, marine works involving dredging operations will be carried out in the Shing Mun River Channel, Sha Tin, the Hong Kong Marine Department (MARDEP) said in its latest announcement.

The works will be carried out by a flotilla of vessels, including one derrick lighter, two hopper barges, two bucket pontoons, one backhoe pontoon, two tugboats and one workboat.

According to MARDEP, the number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

The dredged material will be conveyed to a derrick lighter anchored within a transshipment area bounded by straight lines.

A working area of approximately 15 meters around each working vessel will be established in the works area and the transshipment area.

MARDEP added that a silt curtain – extending from the sea surface to the seabed – will be established beside the backhoe pontoon.
