The Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) has just released this amazing video named ‘The fairway adjustment project is on the home straight’.
It is one of the largest projects of HPA and consists of various sub-projects.
The leading light line is one sub-project: The foundation work had already begun in 2019, the new front light and the new rear light were erected in July 2020 and put into operation in October.
The compensatory measures for hemlock also took a big step forward in 2020.
In February, the first basin was finished with islands and tideways and then later the first seedlings were planted.
The “encounter box” sub-project also moved forward: in March 2020, the contract for the dredging work was awarded, and by the end of the year, the dredging work had already been completed.
