Purdey’s Shoal to get Smaller

Today, Harbour Development Placed the Dredging Barge over Purdy’s Shoal to remove it. The shoal Became A hazard to shipping since the dockyard installed its force protection boom, moving the shipping lane east, and over the shoal.

Reports to VTS indicate the barge will be on station until march.
