Notice to Mariners No 12 of 2018
10 May 2018
PORT ADELAIDE – BASCULE BRIDGES – REDUCED WIDTH OF NAVIGATION CHANNEL
Mariners are advised that essential maintenance works will be undertaken on the fenders protecting the piers of the Tom Diver Derrick bridge and adjacent rail bridge at Port Adelaide. Temporary scaffolding will be erected along the fenders, and therefore the width of the navigation channel under the bridges will be reduced by approximately 1.5 metres. The scaffolding will be approximately 10 metres long and will be moved progressively along one side of the channel, then to the other side of the channel. Works will commence on 20 May 2018 and be completed by 13 July 2018, weather permitting.
Mariners are advised to navigate with extreme caution in the vicinity.
Chart affected: Aus 137
