Pelican Point Dredging Completed

The dregding on the channel at Pelican Point was completed this week and half a metre of additional depth has been added. The channel should now be navigable at all times to vessels up to 1.8 metre draft. At high tide, up to 3 metres of water is available throughout.

Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) is liaising with the Parks and Wildlife Service over placement of sand from the works.

The channel over the barway is holding its position and depth at the moment.

Please contact St Helens Marine Rescue on VHF Channel 16 or UHF Channels 88 or 94 for assistance if you are unfamiliar with the barway crossing or the channel route past Pelican Point.
