Technical Advisory Consultative Committee to form for dredging works

Early explorers and settlers to Tasmania tended to bypass the Mersey River, as it was blocked by a sandbar and the banks were heavily timbered. The first dredging took place in 1890 and has continued through the life of the port.

Berth 2E new works

New works on Berth 2E, where the SeaRoad Mersey 2 and MV Liekut berths, has included fendering and wharf upgrades. The initial work had to be undertaken in time for the arrival of the MV Liekut with some critical works restricted to the small window of opportunity between sailings at night. While the project was a logistical challenge for engineers and contractors, it was accomplished within the tight timeframe due to a high level of collaboration between all parties.

This six minute video gives an overview of the early works undertaken.
