Shoeburyness MOD Range

INFORMATION
Unusual Activity Alert: Wednesday 13 & Thursday 14 March 2019

On Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 March 2019, from approximately 09:00hrs, QinetiQ will be carrying out activities at the Shoeburyness Range on behalf of the MOD, which may be visible in the vicinity of the Thames Estuary.

The activity involves the use of airborne munitions which are designed to illuminate large areas and therefore, members of the public may report repeated observation of distress signals/flares or similar up to 3km out to sea.

All activity on the Range is conducted in a strictly controlled environment and presents no danger to the public. This work, as with the vast majority of work undertaken on the site, is subject to suitable acoustic forecasts and tide times, which are governed by weather conditions on the day. Consequently, the date of the activity may be subject to change. If members of the public are concerned by Range activity, they can call the freephone Careline on 0800 0560108.

All vessels are to proceed with caution whilst navigating in the vicinity of the Survey Vessel, pass at a safe distance and not impede her progress in any manner.

Your full co-operation in this matter will be appreciated.
