Massive dredging off Cyrene Reef continues until May 09

Work which began in Jul 08 will continue to May 09, right next to Cyrene Reef which we just visited last week.
In addition to the dredging, the massive construction for the Pasir Panjang Container Port extension is also near Cyrene Reef.

Dredging Works from Jurong Island to Pulau Ular
from Port Marine Notice No. 204 of 2008 dated 20 Nov 08;
This is a revision of Port Marine Notice No 161 of 2008. The working period has been extended.

With effect from 01 Dec 08 to 31 May 09 at Selat Pandan, Sinki Fairway and West Keppel Fairway (see attached plan):

Dredging works will be carried out by the grab dredger “Pandora” within the sectors as indicated in the chartlet. The grab dredger will be held in position by a 4-point anchor mooring system within the working area. The anchors will be marked by marker buoys. The safety working zone is a circular area of 200-metre radius centred at the dredger. A safety boat will be deployed in the immediate vicinity of the working area to warn other craft of the project work. Further enquiries relating to the project can be directed to Mr P Bogers, the project manager, at Tel No: 9139 6094 or email bog@vanoord.com
