Dredging operations will be performed at New Yau Ma Tei Typhoon Shelter with immediate effect and for a period of approximately six months, according to the Government of Hong Kong Marine Department Notice No.161 of 2014.
The works will be carried out by two derrick lighters, and two hopper barges, two tugs and one workboat will assist. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.
A working area of approximately 50 meters around the derrick lighters will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the derrick lighters. A silt curtain will be established at the immediate area where dredging by grab takes place.
