Construction Works at Castletownbere Fishery Harbour Centre, Co. Cork
The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been advised that construction works will commence at Castletownbere Fishery Harbour Centre, Co. Cork on or around 30th January 2014, weather permitting.
The works will involve the installation of new piles, pontoons and gangway at Barrack Quay and on the Mainland Quay at the western end adjacent to the slipway. A workboat will be used to move the pontoons and a mobile crane will be operating from the shore to install the piles, pontoons and gangways.
For safety reasons, mariners are requested to proceed slowly and with caution in the approach to the Barrack Quay and the western end of the mainland Quay of the Fishery Harbour Centre and to give the works a wide berth. Wave-wash from vessels should be avoided. These works are expected to be on-going until mid March 2014, weather permitting.
