Marine works west of Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre

Wednesday, July 5, 2017, Hong Kong

For approximately 12 months, marine works involving demolition and reconstruction of seawall and box culverts will be carried out in the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (C) and the adjacent shoreline:

(A) 22 deg. 17.002’N / 114 deg. 09.972’E

(B) 22 deg. 17.074’N / 114 deg. 09.979’E

(C) 22 deg. 17.081’N / 114 deg. 10.338’E

The works will be carried out by a flotilla of vessels including one dredger, four dumb lighters, one hopper barge, one crane barge, three tugboats and one work boat. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

A working area of approximately 50 metres around each dredger, lighter and barge will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the dredger, lighters and barges.

Several silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be established within the works area. Each 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 extents of the silt curtains.

The hours of work will be from 0000 to 0500 hours and from 0700 to 2400 hours daily including 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.
