The working period for soil investigation works at Tuas View Extension and the transport of sand material to the stockpile area has been extended.

According to the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore’s Port Marine Notice No.128 of 2019, the work is being conducted 24 hours daily – including Sundays & Public Holidays – from 17 December 2019 to 16 June 2020 within the working area bounded by the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum):
1 01˚ 13.400′ 103˚ 36.291′
2 01˚ 13.400′ 103˚ 36.381′
3 01˚ 13.289′ 103˚ 36.410′
4 01˚ 13.203′ 103˚ 36.499′
5 01˚ 13.211′ 103˚ 36.575′
6 01˚ 13.331′ 103˚ 36.595′
7 01˚ 13.369′ 103˚ 36.648′
8 01˚ 13.458′ 103˚ 36.748′

The work involves transporting and dumping of sand material by self-discharge sand carrier and trailer suction hopper dredgers to the Stockpile Area. Soil investigation work will be carried out by drilling and sampling using a jack-up barge. Tug boats will be used to move the jack-up barges.

The safety zone is a circular area of 30m radius centred at the borehole. A safety boat will be deployed in the vicinity to warn other craft about the work.

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 of the working area;
b) Maintain a proper lookout;
c) Proceed at a safe speed and to 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.
