#capeclear – Construction works are scheduled to commence at North Harbour, Cape Clear Island, Co. Cork. The works will take place at the mouth of the harbour (Co-ordinates 51° 26.5' North, 009° 30.22' West).
The works will involve the construction of a slipway; replacement of the Bull's Nose structure incorporating a storm gate and an extension to the end of Duffy's Pier; excavation, dredging and reclamation works including the construction of an armoured embankment at the seaward side of the new Bull's Nose structure.
For safety reasons, mariners are requested to proceed slowly and with caution in the approach to the entrance to North Harbour and to give the works a wide berth. Wave-wash from vessels should be avoided. Divers will be deployed throughout the underwater works.
North Harbour will remain operational throughout the works, which are expected to be on- going until the end of 2014.
