Seawall Reinstatement Works
October 03, 2014, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

For approximately 4 months, seawall reinstatement works will be carried out [at the Promenade off Stanley Main Street] within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:

(A) 22º 13.024’N / 114º 12.737’E

(B) 22º 13.008’N / 114º 12.709’E

(C) 22º 13.085’N / 114º 12.659’E

The works will be carried out by a flotilla of vessels including two derrick barges, one flat top work barge, some tugs and work boats. The number of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

A working area of approximately 15 metres around the barge will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the barge.

The hours of works will be from 0700 to 1900 hours. No works 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 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.

Construction of Link Road and bridge structures
October 03, 2014, Hong Kong, Hong Kong

For approximately 15 months, marine site investigation and construction of bridge structures for the Hong Kong Link Road will be carried out in the following two works areas:-

WORKS AREA 1:

Bounded by straight lines joining (A) to (B), and (C) to (D), and shorelines in-between these two straight lines. The co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) of (A), (B), (C) and (D) are as follows:-

(A) 22 deg. 17.488’N / 113 deg. 55.772’E

(B) 22 deg. 17.132’N / 113 deg. 55.497’E

(C) 22 deg. 17.620’N / 113 deg. 53.734;E

(D) 22 deg. 17.263’N / 113 deg. 53.651’E

Several sections of silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, will be established along the southern shoreline of the Hong Kong International Airport. 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 curtains.

In this area, a non-specified channel with a width of about 46 meters is provided for vessels to pass through the works area. Vessels journeying through this works area should observe the extent of the working area around each working vessel which is marked by yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights.

WORKS AREA 2:

Bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (C) to (I):-

(C) 22 deg. 17.620’N / 113 deg. 53.734’E

(D) 22 deg. 17.263’N / 113 deg. 53.651’E

(E) 22 deg. 16.319’N / 113 deg. 52.233’E

(F) 22 deg. 16.791’N / 113 deg. 50.989’E

(G) 22 deg. 16.911’N / 113 deg. 51.032’E

(H) 22 deg. 16.614’N / 113 deg. 51.815’E

(I) 22 deg. 16.697’N / 113 deg. 52.571’E

To enable vessels to run across the waters in the west of this area, two specified “One way traffic” channels with a width of about 100 meters will be established. These two channels are marked by two pairs of lateral light buoys at positions from (LR1) to (LR4) and from (LR5) to (LR8) for northwest bound and southwest bound respectively, and four fixed red lights on the constructed piles at positions from (FR1) to (FR4).

The green lateral light buoys are all conical buoys with light characteristics of flashing green in 6 seconds for (LR1) and (LR5), and flashing green in 2 seconds for (LR3) and (LR7). The red lateral light buoys are all can buoys with light characteristics of flashing red in 6 seconds for (LR2) and (LR6), and flashing red in 2 seconds for (LR4) and (LR8). All lateral light buoys are fitted with radar reflectors. The positions (WGS 84 Datum) of the lateral light buoys and fixed red lights are as follows:-

Green lateral light buoys:

(LR1) 22 deg. 16.350’N / 113 deg. 51.715’E

(LR3) 22 deg. 16.451’N / 113 deg. 51.759’E

(LR5) 22 deg. 16.782’N / 113 deg. 51.810’E

Red lateral light buoys:

(LR2) 22 deg. 16.381’N / 113 deg. 51.634’E

(LR4) 22 deg. 16.481’N / 113 deg. 51.678’E

(LR6) 22 deg. 16.805’N / 113 deg. 51.751’E

(LR8) 22 deg. 16.704’N / 113 deg. 51.707’E

Fixed red lights:

(FR1) 22 deg. 16.546’N / 113 deg. 51.797’E

(FR2) 22 deg. 16.568’N / 113 deg. 51.716’E

(FR3) 22 deg. 16.598’N / 113 deg. 51.729’E

(FR4) 22 deg. 16.613’N / 113 deg. 51.663’E

The works will be carried out from a number of temporary working platforms and a flotilla of vessels including jack-up barges, derrick lighters and various types of construction vessels. Some tugs, work boats and guard boats will assist in the works. The number and type of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

The hours of works will be round-the-clock.

A working area of approximately 25 meters will be established around each jack-up barge and working platform. Yellow flashing lights will be installed at the four corners of each jack-up barge or working platform to indicate the position of the barge or the platform. A working area of approximately 100 meters will be established around each derrick lighter or working barge. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the lighters and the barges.

To facilitate the works, 6 yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid at the following positions (WGS 84 Datum):

(MB1) 22 deg. 17.376’N / 113 deg. 55.745’E

(MB2) 22 deg. 17.543’N / 113 deg. 54.018’E

(MB3) 22 deg. 17.016’N / 113 deg. 53.303’E

(MB4) 22 deg. 16.671’N / 113 deg. 52.762’E

(MB5) 22 deg. 16.319’N / 113 deg. 52.233’E

(MB6) 22 deg. 17.122’N / 113 deg. 53.210’E

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