Dredging

Dredging to start at Point Grey, Mandurah

Maintenance dredging is about to commence to widen and restore safe navigation depths to the Point Grey Channel – the waterway linking the Peel Inlet, Dawesville Channel and Harvey Estuary.

Maintenance dredging is about to commence to widen and restore safe navigation depths to the Point Grey Channel – the waterway linking the Peel Inlet, Dawesville Channel and Harvey Estuary.

Department of Transport (DoT) Coastal Infrastructure General Manager Steve Jenkins said dredging was vital for continued safe access for recreational and commercial craft through the waterway.

“The $675,000 project will take three months to complete and see approximately 13,000 cubic metres of sand taken from the channel,” Mr Jenkins said.

“The dredged material, to be pumped through a series of floating and submerged pipes, has been approved to be deposited in the Peel Inlet 600 metres north east of the eastern end of the channel.”

The last dredging in this area, also known as the Zig Zag Channel, was completed in 2003.

Skippers operating in the area during the dredging work should note that a temporary 8 knot speed restriction is in place for the length of the channel. A temporary notice with information for skippers is available at the Peel Temporary Notices to Mariners page.

When navigating near the dredge, skippers should always make radio contact with the dredge to ensure it is safe to pass.

Radio frequencies are:

  • VHF 73
    Marine 27 MHz Channel 90

Junior Crew

West Morley Primary students get on board Junior Crew

Students at West Morley Primary School will have an opportunity to climb on board a patrol vessel and witness a flare demonstration next week as part of the Department of Transport’s Junior Crew program.

Students at West Morley Primary School will have an opportunity to climb on board a patrol vessel and witness a flare demonstration next week as part of the Department of Transport’s Junior Crew program.

DoT’s Manager Safety Education Laurie Adams said Junior Crew was a popular primary school education program providing WA’s next generation of boat skippers’ early learning about safety on the water.

“DoT officers will be attending West Morley Primary next Monday (May 28, 2018) talking to students from years five and six about safety equipment, weather, overloading and buoyancy of a boat and the importance of logging on and logging off for each voyage,” Mr Adams said.

“The highlight of the visit will be an opportunity for students to inspect a working patrol vessel and experience first-hand the noise and colour of activated flares in a special demonstration.

“While the incursion is designed as a fun and engaging learning opportunity, there is a serious message for the students reinforcing the importance of safety on the water, not only for skippers but also passengers.”

Junior Crew was launched in 2009 to introduce children in years three, four and five to water safety with fun hands on learning activities and since the program was updated last year 100 schools from throughout the State, including 32 in the metropolitan area, have implemented the program.

The program aligns with recent changes to the school curriculum in WA and provides teachers with a bank of resources which provide students with a basic understanding of the skills and knowledge required to be safe on the water.
