Published on Monday, 29 May 2023 at 3:12:31 PM

Contractors for the Department of Transport will commence diving for core samples in the Fascine Entryway on Friday 9 June 2023.


There are 10 sites, pictured below, where divers will take samples between 7am and 5pm, from a barge and a support vessel - expected to be completed by Monday 12 June 2023.

Mariners are advised to exercise caution when transiting inside and at the entrance to the Carnarvon Fascine during the above operations – which may incur some temporary closures.

Please check for the latest Notices to Mariners if you’re going to be in the area Here.

The Shire look forward to the next step of these works, when the Fascine Dredging commences! See the Project updates and status Here.
