Hong Kong has issued Marine Department Notice No. 153/2022 to warn vessels navigating in the vicinity of Waglan Island of pier reconstruction works.
The reconstruction works will be carried out for a period of approximately two months by one dumb lighter and one work vessel, while one tug will provide assistance.
A working area of approximately 30 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.
The hours of work will be from 07 to 19 including Sundays and public holidays. Diving operations will be carried out from time to time during the hours of work, while vessels employed for the works will stay in the works area outside the hours of work.
Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear of the works area at slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working in the area.
