Construction of the Permanent Wharf in Rupert’s Valley has begun and will continue for a period of about eight to nine months, weather permitting.
During the construction period all boats and vessels will be subject to a ‘No Go’ area around the immediate construction site. All leisure users will be similarly affected and are asked to adhere to the signage on site.
The restricted offshore ‘No Go’ area (map and coordinates attached) will be marked by yellow buoys, and fishermen and other marine users are asked to strictly adhere to these markers and remain outside of them. A Divers’ Boat and Survey Boat will be at work in this area, marked by the internationally-recognised blue and white flag and red flag respectively.
The Fisherman’s Association, Fisheries Corporation and Argos Atlantic Coldstores have been informed about the restrictions and all affected parties are thanked for their understanding and cooperation during this period.
