The Department of Transport has been advised that the Marine Engineering Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine is undertaking dredging and quay construction works at Smooth Point in Killybegs Fishery Harbour Centre, Co Donegal.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, the contract for the completion of works at Smooth Point was awarded in July to Sorensen Civil Engineering Ltd.

Works were set to begin last month and will continue until April 2023, subject to weather and operational constraints.

Plant on site includes a backhoe dredger, modular pontoon dredgers, split hopper barges, tugs and other smaller vessels.

For safety reasons mariners are requested to stay clear of the dredging zone for the duration of the works in the harbour and are requested to proceed with caution in the area of the new pier. Wave wash from vessels should be avoided.

A map of the dredging area as well as contact information can be found in Marine Notice No 77 of 2022, attached below.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
