Seawall reinstatement works at Tung Wan, Cheung Chau

For approximately 3 months, seawall reinstatement works will be carried out
[at Tung Wan, Cheung Chau] in 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. 12.477′N / 114 deg. 01.946′E
(B) 22 deg. 12.519′N / 114 deg. 01.946′E
(C) 22 deg. 12.519′N / 114 deg. 02.004′E
(D) 22 deg. 12.476′N / 114 deg. 02.004′E

The works will be carried out by one derrick lighter. One backhoe pontoon,
one flat-top pontoon, one tug and one guard boat will provide assistance.

A working area of approximately 25 metres around the derrick lighter 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
lighter.

The hours of work will be from 0800 to 1900 hours. No work will be carried
out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessels employed for the works will
stay in the works area outside the hours of work.

A silt curtain, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be
established within the works area. The silt curtain is a large piece of
netting used to contain mud and sediments. Yellow markers fitted with
yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the extent of the silt curtain.

Vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in
international and local regulations.

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
