Roads and Maritime Services advises boaters of changed conditions on the lower Tweed River upstream of the confluence with Terranora Creek and East of Ukerebagh Island for channel dredging work.

Roads and Maritime has established a special event area around dredging work for safety reasons, with approaches to the dredge and barge operations marked by yellow buoys displaying four knot speed restriction signs.

Vessel operators should remain more than 100 metres from the dredging equipment which includes a dredge and barge, which display dredging operation day shapes and an anchor light at night.

Vessel operators should also observe a speed restriction of four knots in the event area, which is marked by signs and buoys.

Vessels are required to maintain a safe distance and speed from the works operators and to comply with any directions given by a boating safety officer in the area.

Roads and Maritime reminds people to wear a lifejacket when boating, especially in vessels smaller than 4.8 metres when alone, at night or offshore.
