Vessel operators are advised that due to wharf and pier maintenance works at Walsh Bay Pier 2/3 and Pier 4/5, navigation will be restricted on Port Jackson in the area of Walsh Bay. The Area will extend 10 metres north of the pier face and 15 metres west and east of the outer piers and includes the area within the two piers.
Due to the potential to affect the safety of navigation, an Exclusion Zone (‘the Zone’) will be established on the navigable waters of Port Jackson as described above between the above dates which will be marked by lit yellow buoys (see inset).
Vessel operators are advised to exercise extreme caution when navigating in the vicinity of the works and to pay particular attention to the buoyed off area. This navigation warning remains in place for the duration of the works.
Roads and Maritime advises:
- Vessels are required to maintain a safe distance and speed from the works and operators are reminded that the production of wash which impacts unreasonably on the works is an offence (Marine Safety Regulation – clause 11(2)) - Maximum Penalty $5,500.00)
- Persons within the vicinity of the works must comply with any directions given by a Boating Safety Officer or Police Officer in relation to the works or to marine safety. Failure to comply with any such direction is an offence (Marine Safety Act 1998, s.15A - Maximum Penalty $3,300.00).
- No unauthorised vessels or persons are permitted to enter the Zone and to do so may be an offence (Marine Safety Act 1998, s.12(5) — Maximum Penalty $1,100.00)
