The works will be carried out by four dumb lighters. Two tugboats and two guard boats will provide assistance. 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 each dumb 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 dumb lighters.

The hours of work will be from 0700 to 2300 hours daily including 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.
