29th April 2016 - Press Release

Buoys marking works exclusion zone signal start of DWDR construction works

The Prince of Wales Pier and the former Hoverport now form part of the construction area for the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR), with work planned to commence on 9th May to reduce the height of the Pier.

In order to safely complete this work it will be necessary to implement a marine exclusion zone of 50 metres away from the Prince of Wales Pier.

The Port of Dover will install a series of buoys and a floating rope adjacent to the Pier commencing on Friday, 29th April. These will give water users a clear indication of construction areas within the harbour. A rock bund down the beach will be installed presently.

Port of Dover Harbour Master, Paul Brown, said: “The boundary line of the exclusion zone will consist of rock delineation along the beach, a floating rope with small yellow floats to mark the end of the swim zone and a line of four new marker buoys to establish a 50 metre restricted zone for water based activities to the South. 

“For their own safety no water users should cross into the restricted area to the South of the line of buoys shown in red in the photograph at any time.”

The markers will be in place until further notice.
