For approximately 4 months, seawall repair works will be carried out within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:

(A) 22 deg. 15.213’N / 113 deg. 51.355’E
(B) 22 deg. 15.162’N / 113 deg. 51.374’E

(D) 22 deg. 15.180’N / 113 deg. 51.251’E

The works will be carried out by two derrick barges. One work boat and one tugboat will provide assistance.

Precast concrete units and building materials will be conveyed to a derrick barge anchored within the area bounded by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (E) to (H) for transhipment:

(E) 22 deg. 15.081’N / 113 deg. 51.528’E
(F) 22 deg. 15.038’N / 113 deg. 51.535’E

(H) 22 deg. 15.076’N / 113 deg. 51.494’E

A working area of approximately 15 metres around each derrick barge will be established. Yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the barges.

The hours of the works will be from 0700 to 1900 hours. No works will be carried out on Sundays and public holidays. Vessels employed in the works will stay in the works area outside the hours of work.

A silt curtain will be established within the works area. The silt curtain is a large piece of netting used to contain mud and sediments.

Vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations.

Vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear of the works at a slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working in the area.
