Vessel operators are advised that dredging works will be conducted in the vicinity of The Entrance Bridge, Tuggerah Lake, at the Entrance. The works are scheduled to commence on Friday 11 September 2020 and are due for completion on Monday 30 November 2020.


A dredging barge will be located in the channel in the vicinity of The Entrance with a submerged pipe extending to the beach on the west side of Karagi Reserve. Any floating portion of the pipe will be maked by floating buoys. It is anticipated that navigation in the vicinity may be affected.

This navigation warning remains in place for the duration of the works.

  2. 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).
