On Monday 19th April 2023 we will take the final steps in starting the long planned piling project. The spud legged raft, spider crane, mini rotary piling rig, augers, casings, rock hammers, grout pump, and MMO licence are all finally here or enroute next week, ready to start. A new member of staff will also join us to drive the piling rig.

Works will start in earnest on A pontoon which will have six new piles and after over 40 years we will extend A hammerhead and properly stabilise it. This will offer the commercial boats much safer mooring in Easterly winds.

You are obviously welcome to see the piling rig at work but please keep behind the safety barriers. As this is all heavy machinery there will be occasions when access along pontoons is prevented, but as soon as we can safely stop to allow you to pass we will. Please do not attempt to interrupt the workers on the raft.

All boats must keep their distance. The office will be contactable on vhf channel 80 at all times during operation.
