Newport Waters

Birdon undertook maintenance dredging works within the Newport Canals for Moreton Bay Regional Council.The work included the removal of sediment within the canal system using a long reach excavator mounted on a hopper barge.

Sediment was excavated from the seabed and loaded directly into the hopperbarge before being transferred to a larger barge approximately 1km offshore. Once the larger barge reached capacity (500 cubic metres) it was then towed to Mud Island for disposal.
