Maintenance Dredging Campaign

In the week commencing 13th of November, the vessel “Freeway” will conduct dredging activities in the vicinity of Duncannon Bar, Cheekpoint, and Belview.   Disposal will take place at an approved site south west of Hook Head.

Dredging will be followed by a bed levelling campaign by the vessel “Fastnet Sound”. The vessels will maintain a continuous VHF watch on Channels 14 & 16, and will display regulation shapes and lights as per I.R.P.C.S. All vessels approaching the area of operations should communicate with the vessels on Channel 14 and proceed with caution.

All mariners are reminded of their responsibilities under the International Collision Regulations.

The campaign is expected to last approximately 25 days.
