#MarineNotice - Further to Marine Notice No 13 of 2014 from January this year, the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been advised that construction works were scheduled to commence at Westcove Harbour in Co Kerry from yesterday 7 August.

The works will mainly take place at the mouth of the harbour (51° 46' 3.3738" North, 010° 02' 56.7204" West) and will involve the installation of a new navigation beacon, 5-6m in height, at the mouth of the harbour as well as the upgrading of two leading lights located within the harbour.

The works are being advanced by the Marine Engineering Division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The construction will involve use of a work vessel 20m × 7m in size carrying civil engineering plant and machinery, as well as other smaller work vessels and platforms.

The work vessel will display the relevant day signals and navigation lights in accordance with the Collision Regulations.

For safety reasons, mariners are requested to proceed slowly and with caution in the approach to the entrance to Westcove Harbour and to give the works a wide berth. Wave-wash from vessels should be avoided.

These works are expected to be on-going until early September 2014, weather permitting. For further information, contact Marine Engineering Division Office at 066 714 9340.
