Dredging work started on Monday, 27 October and is expected to be complete by Friday, 22 December. Hours of work will be at night between 7pm and 7am, Marine Safety SA said.

The Cape Jervis boat ramp will be closed to recreational users each night during work hours and re-open each morning.

During the dredging project, fees will be waived at the nearby Wirrina Marina boat ramp, Marine Safety SA said.

This work is being done by Maritime Constructions, on behalf of SA Infrastructure and Transport.
