For approximately 12 months, marine works involving reclamation, seawall construction, drainage box culvert construction and diving operations [are being] carried out within the following areas:

WORKS AREA 1
This area is bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (J):
(A) 22 deg. 17.715’N / 113 deg. 56.690’E
(B) 22 deg. 17.828’N / 113 deg. 56.710’E
(C) 22 deg. 17.976’N / 113 deg. 56.930’E
(D) 22 deg. 18.148’N / 113 deg. 57.104’E
(E) 22 deg. 18.320’N / 113 deg. 57.278’E
(F) 22 deg. 18.503’N / 113 deg. 57.593’E
(G) 22 deg. 18.259’N / 113 deg. 58.006’E
(H) 22 deg. 18.081’N / 113 deg. 58.085’E
(I) 22 deg. 18.101’N / 113 deg. 58.149’E
(J) 22 deg. 17.995’N / 113 deg. 58.147’E

WORKS AREA 2
This area is bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (K) to (N):
(K) 22 deg. 18.172’N / 113 deg. 558.534’E
(L) 22 deg. 18.220’N / 113 deg. 58.351’E
(M) 22 deg. 18.376’N / 113 deg. 58.529’E
(N) 22 deg. 18.371’N / 113 deg. 58.733’E

Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights are laid at co-ordinates (B), (D), (F), (G) and (I) to mark the boundary of the Works Area 1, and (L) and (M) to mark the boundary of the Works Area 2.

Silt curtains, extending from the sea surface to the seabed, are established around the boundaries of the works area. The silt curtain is a large piece of netting used to contain mud sediments. Yellow markers fitted with yellow flashing lights are laid to mark the extent of the silt curtains.

The works [are being] carried out by a flotilla of vessels including derrick barges, flat top barges, jack-up platforms, grab dredgers, crane barges, landing pontoons, hopper barges and drilling barges at various stages. Some tugboats and work boats will provide assistance. The numbers and types of vessels engaged in the works will change from time to time to suit operational requirements.

A working area of approximately 50 metres [is] established around each working vessel. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights are laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the working vessels.

Yellow flashing lights [are] installed at the corners of the jack-up platforms to indicate the positions of the platforms.

The hours of works are from 0700 to 1900 hours. No works will be carried out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessels employed in the works will stay in the works areas outside the hours of works.

Diving operations will be carried out from time to time during the hours of works.

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

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear of the works areas at slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working in the area.
