With immediate effect and for a period of approximately three months, marine site investigation works involving drilling of boreholes will be carried out between Sham Shui Kok and Sunny Bay, Lantau Island.
The works will be carried out by one jack-up barge, while one tugboat and three work boats will provide assistance. A working area of approximately 30 metres around the barge will be established and yellow flashing lights will be installed at the four corners of the barge to indicate its position.
The hours of work will be from 07 to 19 and no works will be carried out on Sundays and public holidays. However, vessels employed for the works will stay in the works locations outside the hours of work.
Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution.
