Limited Dredge campaign – Blyth 23rd -29th Sept

From Martin Willis, Harboumaster:

Please be advised that the small back hoe dredger ‘Sandsend’ shall arrive Friday evening under taking a limited 4-5 dredge campaign at Blyth. Work will commence on the wooden fishing vessel jetty at the Port Control inner pier prior to removing sand build up on the drying berth behind the HM office. Pontoon anchoring plans have been provided so there should be no interference with pontoon moorings at any time.
Access to & from the pontoons may be restricted during loading operations though not entirely closed at any time, please advise members to work with the Port Control and the Vessel Master regarding safe vessel movements on VHF Ch12.

I shall be issuing a Local Notice to Mariners prior to the work commencing Saturday 23rd Sept.

Kind Regards,
