North Queensland Bulk Ports will be maintenance dredging within Port of Weipa’s southern channel and inner harbour between 5 and 30 April inclusive.

The dredge vessel TSHD Brisbane, as well as support vessels, will have restricted manoeuvring capability so boaties are asked to take note of the warning flags and lights.

Local and visiting boaties are asked to take extra care during this time.

Maintenance dredging at the port needs to be carried out to ensure that safe, navigable shipping depths are maintained. Strict environmental controls and management measures will be implemented to minimise the risk of any potential marine environment impact.

Your cooperation and understanding is appreciated.
