The construction safety boom (CSB) defines the active construction area for the Westridge Marine Terminal (WMT) expansion. Only authorized persons are allowed within the CSB.

All vessel traffic must access the construction safety zone (CSZ), including the existing Westridge dock, through the two gates:

  • Eastern Ship Gate for larger vessels associated with construction or terminal operations.
  • Western Barge Gate for smaller vessel traffic associated with construction. 
  • A patrol launch, supply barges and water taxi will continue to call at the site, or move about the site as needed throughout each working day. 
  • Please see issued NOTSHIP P-1486 (2017) dated September 21, 2017.
  • All marine traffic is advised to exercise caution when travelling through this area. Commercial traffic is requested to coordinate with the Contractor on VHF Channel 9 as necessary.
  • The CSB is provided with navigation marks including reflectors and flashing navigation lights (yellow and red) with visibility of a minimum two nautical mile range. Lights are placed every 25 m along the CSB panels. Radar reflectors are fitted at the northwest and northeast corner buoys. 
  • The CSB is located within the CSZ boundary. Coordinates of the CSZ are as follows:
