Channel restoration works at Bundaberg

Port of Bundaberg Gladstone Ports Corporation is undertake emergency maintenance dredging work at Port of Bundaberg

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) is undertaking shipping channel restoration works at the Port of Bundaberg following significant rainfall last year.

Rain in October/November caused a build-up of sediment in the Queensland port’s main shipping berth and the inner reach of the shipping channel which has severely hindered the berthing and movement of commercial ships in and out of the port.

GPC CEO Peter O’Sullivan says the organisation will undertake emergency maintenance dredging to restore the depths of the berth pockets and inner reach of the channel.

It’s important these works go ahead to ensure the operational safety of the harbour,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

“Material will be removed over the next 4 days and deposited at the existing Port of Bundaberg sea disposal site.”

The extent of the emergency maintenance work is limited to the area posing ship navigational risks.

GPC said it has carefully considered the potential impacts on fauna and flora and worked with government agencies to implement appropriate controls to ensure minimal environmental impacts while the dredging maintenance activities are being undertaken.
