Yarra River closure

Maintenance works to the services protection over the WAG and GASNET pipelines approximately 100 metres south of Beacons 35 and Beacons 36 will be carried out from around 0800 to 1800 hours on 29 September 2017.

The timing of the Yarra River Closure has been undertaken in consultation with all the key stakeholders to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.

This essential maintenance work will involve diving operations.

To safely manage this operation, closure of the River Yarra to large commercial vessels will be necessary.

Small vessel traffic intending to transit the area should exercise extreme caution when navigating in the vicinity of the diving operations under reduced speed and under the direction of Melbourne VTS.

For more details, please contact Melbourne VTS on 96449700 or on VHF Channel 12.
