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.

NORTH SEA - Belgium to Netherlands - Routeing measures. Area to be avoided.

Anchorage area.


To improve safety of navigation, reduce the risk of marine environment pollution and the planned development of wind farm sites in the area between traffic separation schemes of West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West, new and amended IMO adopted routeing measures come into force at 0000 UTC 1 June 2017.


“Off the Netherlands and Belgian coasts between West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West traffic separation schemes”, new and amended schemes are to be established as follows:


a. The north-eastern end of the TSS “North Hinder South” will be shortened and the precautionary area “North Hinder Junction” will be extended to join the TSS.


b. A new traffic separation scheme “Off North Hinder” will be established east of TSS “North Hinder South” adjoining the precautionary area “North Hinder Junction”.


c. The eastbound traffic lane of TSS “Maas West Outer” will be amended.


d. A new precautionary area “At Gootebank” will be established north of Deep Water route “In the Approaches to the River Scheldt”.


e. The TSS “At West Hinder” will be shortened and the precautionary area “At West Hinder” will be extended to join the TSS.


f. A new precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele” will be established north-east of the existing precautionary area “In the vicinity of Thornton and Bligh Banks”.


g. A new Area to be Avoided “Windfarm Borssele Pass” will be established through the precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele” for traffic under 45m in length.


3. To regulate traffic northbound and southbound east of the precautionary area “Windfarm Borssele”, new routeing  measures are to be established as follows:


a. A new precautionary area “Schouwenbank Junction” will be established. This precautionary area is connected via a twoway route “Schouwenbank NW” to precautionary area “North Hinder Junction”; via a two-way route “Schouwenbank NE” to precautionary area “Maas Junction”; via a two-way route “Westpit” to precautionary area “At Gootebank” and via a two-way route “Schouwenbank SE” to the channel “Oostgat”.


b. The anchorage area “Schouwenbank” will be adjusted according to the new two-way route “Schouwenbank NE”.


4. Details of all the above changes are shown on the accompanying diagram.


5. In addition to the above changes, radio reporting points, buoyage and anchorages will be amended and repositioned. The details of these changes will be published in the relevant NLHO and UKHO Publications.


6. Details of the routeing measures will be included in New Editions of Charts 110, 1406, 1630, 1872, 1873, 1874, and 2449 to be published in April 2017. These charts will be published with a cautionary note advising mariners that the existing charts, which will be given an “X” prefix, should be retained and used until 0000 UTC 1 June 2017. A New Edition of Chart 8012 will be published in June 2017. Charts 122, 1408, 2182A and 5500 will be updated by Notice to Mariners.


Note: Mariners are advised that this is a significant change to IMO routeing in the West Hinder, North Hinder and Maas West area. Mariners should familiarise themselves with these changes and ensure that they have all necessary chart and publication updates in advance of the implementation date.

I caused this five reductions of depth in the Mersea Quarters and entrance to Tollesbury Creek following a survey in the autumn last year.  Local buoyage has been lifted and will be changed shortly.


Mersea Spit has changed shape and local fishermen reporting touching bottom at the bottom of LW springs.  It is now NOT possible to expect 2m CD throughout the Quarters.


The image is based upon the current Imray chart and can be downloaded.  But I would recommending that my CTTE images are used.  Again the current (as at Week 4) shows the old local buoyage but this will be altered (and announced) as soon as it is laid.
