TasPorts has started work on seabed levelling in the Port of Burnie.

The work, which started yesterday, is being carried out near at berths 5, 6 and 9 and is expected to take around three weeks to complete.

TasPorts says the works are being done from a dredging barge on the surface of the water and is not expected to impact on port users and will work around scheduled shipping.
