29th May 2014
Marine Notice: Doolin Pier Development

#MarineNotice - The latest Marine Notice from the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) advises that works are being advanced by L&M Keating Ltd on the new harbour development at Doolin, Co Clare.

The location of the works – comprising a new pier, revetment, bed rock dredging, access road and associated works – is at Latitude 53° 00’.54 N and Longitude 009° 24’.23 W.

Construction commenced last month and the works are expected to take in the region of 18 months to complete.

Drilling and blasting works were scheduled to be carried out this week, and for health and safety reasons an Exclusion Zone has been set up and is being and monitored.

Mariners are requested to proceed slowly and with caution in the vicinity and to give the works a wide berth.

All vessels in this area should proceed with extreme caution, reduce speed to a minimum and keep a close look out for obstructions in the vicinity of the works.

The site working area will be marked with blue buoys. Wave-wash from vessels should be avoided. A diagram of the works area is included in Marine Notice No 33 of 2014, a PDF of which is available to read or download HERE.
