Boskalis Westminster Ltd - Notice to Mariners


Boskalis Westminster Limited wishes to advise the re-commencement on Thursday 27th October 2022, of the shingle replenishment works for Eastbourne Borough Council.

The shingle will be placed on Eastbourne beach in groyne bays between the Wish Tower and the Bandstand.
Because of the poor weather conditions predicted, the duration of the work is undetermined, hopefully completion will be achieved before Friday 4th November 2022.

The shingle will be delivered by hopper dredger ‘Sospan Dau’.

The vessel will sail from the dredge area at Owers Bank to the discharge areas in Eastbourne. The delivery will take place from 2 hours before high tide (HW) until 1 hour after.

The vessel will keep watch on VHF Channel 16.

All Mariners, Fishermen, Yachtsmen and other recreational users of these waters are asked to provide a wide berth to the dredger, particularly when she makes her approach to the beach and during discharge operations close to the beach.

Additional information, if required, can be obtained on site or from Boskalis Westminster Limited at the address below.
