Breakthrough Progress for Brighton Dredging Programme
Works to complete the dredging programme at Brighton Marina are in full swing, with breakthrough progress made by external contractors, ML Dredging.
Since arriving onsite at the start of June, the ML Dredging crew have worked continuously to complete the required dredging works to the full extent permitted under our Marine Management Organisation licence. Currently almost 50,000m3 of naturally deposited silt has been removed.
The Brighton Marina team continue to assist ML with the dredging programme, managing all the required vessel and pontoon movements and general traffic control in and out of the marina. The visitor pontoon area has now been dredged and reinstated, which will help the marina team with vessel capacities for berth holders going forward.
Mike Hatch CMM, Marina Manager comments: “As we enter the last vital stage of the contractor works, further vessels will be required to be temporarily moved off their home berths and our team will communicate this to any affected berth holders. It’s important that all marina users monitor VHF channels 80 or 37 as we announce movements of the dredge vessels on these channels.”
