Posted January 23, 2018

Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) is undertaking shipping channel restoration works at the Port of Bundaberg, following significant rainfall in the area in October/ November last year.

The build-up of sediment in the port's main shipping berth and the inner reach of the shipping channel has severely hindered the berthing and movement of commercial ships in and out of the port.

Emergency maintenance dredging is being carried out to restore the depths of the berth pockets and inner reach of the channel. The extent of the work is limited to the area posing ship navigational risks.
