With immediate effect and for a period of approximately seven months, marine works involving dredging operations will be carried out within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (E) and the adjacent shoreline:
(A) 22° 23.530’N 114° 12.142’E
(B) 22° 23.505’N 114° 12.173’E
(C) 22° 23.436’N 114° 12.108’E
(D) 22° 23.461’N 114° 12.077’E
(E) 22° 23.466’N 114° 12.082’E
The works will be carried out by one special purpose vessel and one dumb lighter. One multi-purposes vessel will provide assistance. A working area of approximately 70 metres around the special purpose vessel and lighter will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the special purpose vessel and lighter.
Silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be established within the works area. The silt curtain is a large piece of netting used to contain mud and sediments. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the extent of the silt curtains.
The hours of work will be from 0700 to 1900 hours. No works will be carried out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessels employed for the works will stay in the works area outside the hours of work. Diving operations will be carried out from time to time during the hours of work.
Vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations. Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear of the works area at slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working in the area.
