Project Updates - May 31, 2011

ABC reports that Gladstone Port Corporation undertook emergency dredging in February to reopen the port after flooding of the Burnett River a month earlier. Now it will continue the work and remove about 350,000 cubic metres of river sand from the port's swing basin, berth pockets and departure channel. The sand will be moved to a special pond at the port.

Chairman Ian Brusasco says most of the dredging will be around the swing basin, which will allow the port to take larger ships. He says the A$2.6 million in work will be finished by September and there should be no impact on shipping.
