The works include removal of rocks at revetments, installation and maintenance of silt barricade, dredging, rehandling of sand, reclamation and construction of revetments. A temporary jetty will be installed with the assistance of crane barges and workboats.

The dredging work will be carried out by grab dredger assisted by tug boats. The dredger will have a circular safety working zone of 100m radius centred at the dredger. Dredged materials will be transported to the designated dumping ground by hopper barges assisted by tug boats.

Crane barges will be used for the removal of rocks and the construction of revetments. The rocks will be loaded onto flat top barges which will then be discharged on land.

The rehandling of sand will be carried out by backhoe dredger and bucket ladder dredger. The dredgers will have a circular safety working zone of 100m radius centred at the dredger. The sand will be transported to the designated dumping ground by hopper barges and flat top barges.

The reclamation work will be carried out by hopper barges.

The temporary jetty will be in use until November 2018.

Safety boats will be deployed in the vicinity of the working area to warn other craft and vessels of the work.

When in the vicinity, mariners are reminded to:
a) keep well clear and not 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);

(A) 22 deg. 29.140’N / 114 deg. 18.556’E
(B) 22 deg. 29.121’N / 114 deg. 18.559’E

The works will be carried out by one derrick lighter. One crane boat and one tugboat will provide assistance.

A working area of approximately 15 metres around the 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 lighter.

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.

The hours of work 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.

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

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
