Dredging and quay construction works will be underway at Smooth Point, Killybegs Fishery Harbour Centre from late October 2019 until July 2020.
Plant on site shall include the Capall Mara Backhoe Dredger (Callsign: MBSF3), modular pontoon dredgers, split hopper barges, tugs and other smaller vessels. Appendix 1 provides details of the location in which these works are to take place.
The works will also entail the disposal of dredge sediments at a permitted dumpsite in Donegal Bay.
For safety reasons, mariners are requested to stay clear of these sites for the duration of the works in the harbour and are requested to proceed with caution in the area of the new pier and the vicinity of the dumpsite when disposal operations are on-going. Wave wash from vessels should be avoided.
