With effect from 13 Mar 2009 to 12 Apr 2009. 24 hours daily, including Sundays and Public Holidays. At Changi East(see attached plan):
Sand mining will be carried out by the TSHD (trailing suction hopper dredger, what is this?) within the working areas. CSD will dredge the high spot in sector A and deposit the sand into rehandling areas 1 and 2. CSD will be held by spud legs and assisted by tug boat for movement within the working areas. Floating steel pipes will be anchored at 6 points with lighted buoys. There will be occasional survey work carried out by DHI survey vessel as required. Proper precautions will be in place and a safe distance of more than 250-metre from the dredger will be kept when such operations are carried out. Safety boats will be deployed to warn craft to keep clear of the working area. Further enquiries relating to operation can be directed to Mr S Y Yoon, the project coordinator, at Tel: 9795 5884, (email:email@example.com).
