For approximately six months, reconstruction works for a pier at Waglan Island are being carried out within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:
(A) 22 deg. 10.934’N / 114 deg. 18.126’E
(B) 22 deg. 10.994’N / 114 deg. 18.078’E
(C) 22 deg. 11.066’N / 114 deg. 18.179’E
(D) 22 deg. 11.012’N / 114 deg. 18.223’E
The works are being carried out by one dumb lighter and one work boat. One tugboat provides assistance.
A working area of approximately 30 metres around the lighter is established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights are laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the lighter.
A silt curtain, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, is 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 are laid to mark the extent of the silt curtain.
The hours of work are from 0700 to 1900 hours. No works are being carried out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessels employed for the works stay in the works area outside the hours of work.
Diving operations are being 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.
