Over the next few weeks there are a number of planned maintenance works, dredging and access restrictions being carried out as part of our rolling development programme at Burry Port Marina.
ACCESS CHANNEL DREDGING
Dredging will begin on the entrance channel to Burry Port Marina on Tuesday 29th May for approximately 5 days. Throughout this period please take extra care when navigating in and out of the harbour. Please give the dredger space to operate and manoeuvre.
REPAIRS TO TIDAL GATE
In order to carry out the necessary repairs and maintenance to the tidal gate the ram is being removed between 11th to 13th June. During this period no vessels will be able to move in or out of the marina. We apologise for the inconvenience, but this maintenance work is essential. The repair works to the ram should take approximately 6 weeks. During this period Burry Port Marina will become a tidal marina. We will keep berth holders updated as to when the tidal gate is ready to be reinstalled. Please take great care when entering or exiting the marina during this time-frame.
We are awaiting permission to commence the next stage of dredging within the marina itself. Data has been submitted for the required environmental studies, but we still need to have licences issued. At this stage we anticipate starting the dredging at the end of June. We will keep berth holders updated as this process progresses.
NEW DREDGER ORDERED
We have commissioned a brand new dredger which is planned for delivery in February 2019. This new dredger is being purpose built to carry out the ongoing maintenance dredging of the marina. Its capacity is 3 times that of our existing dredger.
Work has started on our scheduled pontoon maintenance, cleaning and repairs. New safety signage has been put up around the marina and new noticeboards. Please ensure you regularly look at the noticeboards for the most up to date information.
