Mooloolaba Harbour open for business

The entrance to the Mooloolaba Harbour is back in business again after the successfully dredging of the channel, Member for Maroochydore Fiona Simpson said.

Ms Simpson said boaties would be pleased to know the problem entrance to the Mooloolah River, which had caused recreational and commercial boaties grave safety concerns due to a large sand shoal, had been fixed. She said she had been advised that due to strong wind warnings, dredging on the remaining shoal on the western side of the channel would be stopped for the rest of the week, however she had been assured the channel itself was clear.

She said Maritime Safety Queensland had decided that as a result of the bad weather, the big dredge, the Port Frederick, would leave Mooloolaba today, and when calmer weather returned, the smaller Saibai which is still contracted on site, would finish the job.

Ms Simpson thanked boaties for their patience and urged anyone venturing out to always check the official notices to mariners to check conditions. She also thanked the dredge operators for their work.
