Farewell Fairway
Cruise BerthMaintenance DredgingReclamation

For the past 12 weeks, the Fairway has been hard at work dredging to make the shipping channel deeper, wider and longer.

The Fairway finished work on Saturday afternoon and left Lyttelton bound for Singapore. There is still some minor levelling of the channel to do, so you will see the sweep tug, Capricorn Alpha, working for another few weeks.

With the Channel Deepening Project nearing completion, we are now implementing the most significant upgrade to navigation aids at the Port in 35 years.

Navigation aids are a visual guide to help vessels get in and out of the Harbour safely. The upgrades will ensure the Harbour's navigation aids are up to a modern and international standard.

Keep an eye out for a future blog posts on how the new navigation aids work.
