Two reduced depths at the Long Sand Head giving continual extension of the north-east.  Whilst the depths are still adequate for leisure craft, the Long Sand Head needs prudence.

This is a sad time when five useful marks are unmaintained and now declining.  Topmarks of each of the five beacons listed have now apparently fallen.  Unfortunately as the Middle Sand is a red and white beacon, this can now be regarded as a safe area once the stump has fallen below the HW.

Week 35


ENGLAND - East Coast - Thames Estuary - Traffic separation scheme.


To improve the safety of navigation in the Approaches to the Thames Estuary, the International Maritime Organization

(IMO) has approved the modification of the Long Sand Head two-way route and the SUNK Inner Precautionary Area in the

existing Traffic Separation Scheme .In the SUNK area and in the Northern approaches to the Thames Estuary.. These changes will be implemented at 0000hrs UTC on 1 January 2018.


The limits of the two-way route and Precautionary Area are to be extended northwards to route traffic away from the shallow banks of Long Sand Head. These banks are surveyed and monitored on a regular basis and have been found to be migrating north-eastwards.


The details of the amended scheme are shown in the accompanying diagram.


These amendments will be included in a New Edition of Chart 2692 to be published November 2017. This chart will be published with a cautionary note advising mariners that the existing chart, which will be given an .X. prefix, should be retained and used until 0000hrs UTC on 1 January 2018. Charts 1975, 1183, 1610, 1406 and 8157 will be updated by Notice to Mariners. All ENCs affected will be updated at 0000hrs on 1 January 2018.

All vessels should navigate with caution in the area. A safety zone of 50 metres becomes operational around each turbine

as it is being installed, with a safety zone of 500 metres around the installation vessel.


*Cable laying operations are being conducted between Galloper Wind Farm and Sizewell Power Station at (52° 12´·36N., 1° 37´·39E.)


Charts will be updated to show the works area in due course.  For latest information see Galloper Wind Farm Notice to Mariners.  Former Notice 2475(P)/16, is cancelled.  *Indicates new or revised entry.


Note:  The Galloper Wind Farm web site shows the projected timetable as showing that the second and final cable should have been installed in May and the Offshore Sub-station installed in the ‘Summer’.  It would seem that there is some slippage.

This NtM is a consequence of my survey in June.  The result of the NtM suggests the swatchway is very difficult.  This is because the UKHO policy is only to publish NtM showing reductions of depth and not to include increases of depth in the NtM, attending to that in the next edition of the chart.  The important issue of the NtM is to show the movement of the SW Knoll towards the north-east.


I have not included the contour changes in the image, one because it is based on the Imray chart which has different contours to the UKHO, second because I recommend you go to the better scale of my chartlet: there is a good swatchway still there.

Four new depths: one near the Trinity south cardinal at the sunk Inner, two on Long Sand Head and one adjacent to the eastern side of Foulger’s Gat.

The new depth at Trinity is sufficiently deep not to trouble leisure craft.  The two on Long Sand Head confirm that this is not a place for leisure craft (or commercial shipping for that matter).  The new depth on the edge of Foulger’s Gat is to the eastern edge.  At present it is away from the direct line between the two safe water marks but nevertheless worth noting.

Another of the 1950’s beacons has given way, this time the NW Long sand beacon.  Only the Cant and Girdler beacons of this series remain and those are already ruins.  The NW Long sand had its uses as a clearing line when crossing the SW Sunk swatchway – now sadly no longer visible.  The wreckage is probably least of our worries as nobody in their right mind would venture over the top of the NW Long Sand.  Quite close to the remains (sunken) of Radio Caroline of course.

Week 40


Notice 4255(P)/13 ENGLAND - East Coast - Thames Estuary - Sunk, Black Deep, Knock John Channel, Oaze Deep, Yantlet Channel and Sea Reach - Deep water route. Buoyage.

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
