Work will include reclamation, soil investigation & dredging.

Dredging work will be carried out by grab dredgers. Each grab dredger will
be held by 3 spuds as anchors. The dredgers, with hopper barges in
attendance, will have a circular safety working zone of 50-metre radius
centred at the dredgers. Dredged materials will be transported to the
designated dumping ground by hopper barges.

During operation, the dredgers will be attended by tug boats which will be
used to shift the dredger.

Soil investigation work will be carried out by means of borehole drilling
using jack-up barges. One jack-up barge will be working on only one
borehole at a time.

The jack-up barge, with tug boats in attendance, will have a circular
safety working zone of 30 meters radius centered at the barge. Tugboats
will be used for shifting the barge from one borehole location to another.

A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn
other craft of the project.

Craft involved in the works will exhibit the appropriate local and
international day and night signals.

When in the vicinity of the working area, mariners are reminded to:
(a) keep well clear and not to enter the working area;
(b) maintain a proper lookout;
(c) proceed at a safe speed and navigate with caution;
(d) maintain a listening watch on VHF Channel 22 (Jurong Control);
and
(e) communicate with Jurong Control on VHF Channel 22 for assistance, if
required.
