Western Entrance now closed
Initially, it will just be the contractors plant (barges and machinery) in the way. As the project progresses and the seabed rises, they will establish some large buoys on the outside, but the plant will generally also present a physical barrier.
The eastern entrance has plenty of space and good visibility, but regardless of increased traffic, boaties should always exercise extra care and attention to safely enter or depart Westhaven especailly as SeaLink now share this waterspace.
While users adjust to the change, Westhaven staff will be on the water to monitor movements and assist when required
