South Shields Lighthouse –Scour Repair Navigation Information

Notice is hereby given that commencing on or about Tuesday 5th February 2019 and for a period of approximately 4 days, the Grab Dredger M/S Peter Madsen will be involved in placing Scour protection rock adjacent to the South Pier Lighthouse.

PS. In reality he should only be displaying his balls when manoeuvrability is restricted, not when he is attached to the land or underway in normal circumstances. Methinks they are to lazy too take em down :mrgreen:
