NAVIGATION & SAFETY

Environment Agency Sea Wall Repairs – South Bank, River Crouch, Hullbridge

(Long Reach & Short Reach)

Mariners are advised, in particular windsurfers, dinghy sailors and canoeists of a potential navigational hazard from the placement of unmarked vertical posts projecting up from the seabed in the River Crouch at Long Reach & Short Reach following repairs undertaken by the Environment Agency to install rock and brushwood rolls (please see attached photograph).

Work will commence on the 5th November 2018 to ensure that the posts are all cut to the correct height and it is anticipated the work will be completed within the week.

Mariners are requested to keep a wide berth from the embankment until the Environment Agency has completed the work.  The works will extend 3m from the bank toe and Mariners are advised that a 5 metre (16 feet) exclusion zone will be implemented.
