8 reduction of depth in and around the Gull Stream.  It is worth noting the drying height on the western side of the Goodwins, pretty close to a lateral line from the West Goodwin SHB to the NW Goodwin cardinal buoy.  Favouring the eastern side of the Gull Stream seems an obvious precaution in a SW wind!

Source: Port of London Authority


As part of the environmental monitoring campaign in connection with the London Gateway project, monitoring equipment

(some marked by light-buoys, Fl.Y, and some by unlit buoys) has been deployed in Gravesend Reach, Lower Hope Reach, Mucking Flats, Sea Reach, Maplin Sands and Oaze, within an area bounded by the following positions (WGS84 Datum):


51° 26´·5N., 0° 22´·0E.

51° 34´·0N., 0° 22´·0E.

51° 34´·0N., 0° 59´·0E.

51° 26´·5N., 0° 59´·0E.


The monitoring equipment and associated buoyage will remain in position until early 2014.


For information and positions of the monitoring equipment mariners are advised to consult the Port of London Authority website (www.pla.co.uk) for Notices to Mariners. Some monitoring equipment will be relocated to new sites at monthly intervals. Information on position changes can be obtained from London VTS and will be broadcast on VHF channels 68

and 69.


Frequent survey operations will take place in this region for the duration of the deployment.


Mariners are advised to navigate with caution in the above areas.

Channels.


Source: Port of London Authority & Trinity House


1. As part of the recent dredging campaign for the London Gateway Project and the deepening of channels between the Sunk (51° 51´·70N., 1° 38´·77E.) and Sea Reach (51° 29´·70N., 0° 29´·70E.), significant changes affecting deep draught vessels will occur on the 1 October 2013.


2. The following is a list of the major changes that will happen on that date (please refer to the three diagrams opposite):


a. Within the Sunk Inner Precautionary Area, the Sunk Deep Water Route will be moved approximately 250 metres to the north west so that it runs parallel to the old route. The new route will be marked by the Sunk Inner Buoy which was moved earlier in August. A new buoy is to be laid to mark the wreck of the Dynamo – see London Gateway Project, changes to

ships routeing – Figure 1.


b. In the vicinity of the Sunk Head, the Sunk Deep Water Route will lead into a new deepened channel approximately 300

metres wide and 5000 metres long. A new special marker buoy (SHM) will mark the junction of the Trinity Deep Water

Route to this new channel – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 1.


c. In the Black Deep and Fisherman’s Gat Precautionary Area, a new Deep Water Route and deepened channel will be established marked by special marker buoys – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 2.


d. In the Knock John Channel, all the buoyage is to be repositioned to mark a slightly amended 300 metres wide deepened channel – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 2.


e. In the Oaze Precautionary Area, the Deep Water Route is to be moved south of its current charted position with buoyage repositioned to mark the channel and special marker buoys inserted to mark significant wrecks – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 3.


f. The Yantlet Channel will be extended by 3000 metres east south east to link in with the Oaze Deep Water Route near the West Oaze buoy – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 3.


g. The Oaze Precautionary Area is to be extended northward by approximately 500 metres in the western part of the Warp area – see London Gateway Project, changes to ships routeing – Figure 3.


3. Mariners are advised that these measures have been put in place specifically for deep draught vessels. Where smaller vessels have sufficient sea room to navigate safely away from the Deep Water Route they are encouraged to do so.


4. For further information mariners should refer to the Port of London Authority.


5. These changes will be included on New Editions of charts 1183, 1185, 1186, 1606, 1607, 1609, 1975 and 2692 to be published in November 2013. Charts 2484 and 2052 will be updated by Notices to Mariners. Those New Editions that cover the Sea Reach area will show the layout of the new London Gateway Container Port. For details of changes to buoyage in Sea Reach please refer to Notice 3514(P)/13. (In Week 33)

This notice is a Trinity House Notice at present (No 18 of 2013).  This notice combines with PLA Notice to Mariners No 14 of 2013 (shown in these pages last week) and two earlier notices to illustrate all the changes that will occur this year in preparation for the commissioning of the London Gateway.


This notice from Trinity House lists the changes that will be made in October, 2013 and affects many charts.


In order to provide readers with simple, clear and useful information, CTTE is publishing a PDF providing a comprehensive list of all the changes occurring during August under the PLA notice and in October under the Trinity House notice.  The PDF includes three images illustrating the buoyage as it will be once concluded in October.


The RYA have made enquiries and there is no intention to bring in any restrictions for leisure craft but of course normal Regulations will apply in the Sea Reach to Black Deep channels where large container ships will be constrained by the draught.


Now amended by PLA NtM 14 of 2013 and UKHO Notice 4255(P).  PDF below was amended again on 23rd September, 2013

UKHO Chart: 1183

UKHO Leisure Folio: 5607.3


This is a late ‘catch-up’ on the buoyage changes in the Whitaker and Swallowtail channels from July, 2011.  (yes, I did mean July, 2011).  Chart 1183 is not one probably used by Leisure Craft being the whole Thames Estuary and it deals with the changes by deletion of the old marks and insertion of a legend saying the channel is ‘buoyed’.


I am aware that the Imray chart (2000.8, included in Imray/Meridian ID10) was correctly printed and republished in August, 2011 – DO NOT TRY TO APPLY THIS CORRECTION TO THAT CHART – although it would apply to earlier versions.


The UKHO Leisure Folio 5607.3 was republished in December, 2011 (9th Edition) and similarly will not need emendation although the 8th Edition will.


CTTE ‘diagram’ of the revised buoyage is available below.
