Dredging operations will be carried out by a grab dredger which will be held in position by four anchors.

The dredged materials will be loaded onto hopper barges. Pusher tugboat will push the loaded hopper barge to the designated dumping ground to dispose the dredged materials,” said MPA.

A circular safe working area of 70 meters radius centered from the dredger is set to be maintained during the working hours.

According to MPA, a safety boat will be in attendance at all times to warn and direct craft in the vicinity to keep clear of working area.
