Local Notice to Mariners 01/2018

All mariners are hereby advised of the following message relating to Conwy Marina issued by the Marina Manager.

Please be advised that we have recently severed an electrical cable to the sill gate traffic lights and proximity sensors which has now resulted in them being inoperable.

As a precautionary safety measure, we will not be operating the sill gate until the new cable can be fitted and tested. Vessels wishing to access or egress the marina must have VHF or telephone communication with the marina office prior to crossing the sill entrance.

The sill gate will remain buoyant and sufficient clearance must be provided by Quay Marinas prior to your vessels arrival or departure.

Electrical engineers will be on site early next week to assess the full extent of the damage and to provide us with an approximate timescale schedule for the works, which will be relayed to you just as soon as we receive it.

My apologies for this very unfortunate and unforeseen circumstance, but we will try and have the situation resolved as quickly as possible.

A cancelation notice will be issued when the fault has been rectified
