Obstruction off Canvey Point

Straits of Dover New Traffic Separation Scheme July 08

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING NEW TRAFFIC SEPARATION SCHEME OFF HARWICH

Admiralty Leisure will be shortly issuing New Edition Leisure Chart Folios for the Thames Estuary area. The two folios include:
SC5606 Ramsgate to Tower Bridge
SC5607 Essex and Suffolk Coast.

These New Editions include details of the modified and extended existing Sunk Precautionary Area and the establishment of three Traffic Separation Schemes in the Northern Approaches to the Thames Estuary. This is a significant change for all navigating in the Harwich and the approaches to the Thames Estuary’s area and therefore navigators are strongly encouraged to ensure they have the New Edition charts on board.

Details of change:

ENGLAND — Thames Estuary — Sunk — Precautionary areas. Traffic separation schemes. Recommended route. Two-way route. Area to be avoided. Buoyage. Radio reporting points. Vessel traffic service. Automatic Identification System. Light-vessel.
Source: International Maritime Organization
1. To improve the safety of navigation in the Northern Approaches to the Thames Estuary, the International Maritime Organization have approved the modification and extension of the existing Sunk Precautionary Area and the establishment of three TSSs, a two-way traffic route at Long Sand Head, an area to be avoided and a recommended route at the Galloper. These changes will be implemented at 0000 UTC 1 July 2007.
2. The existing Sunk Precautionary Area will be extended to form two parts; the Sunk Inner Precautionary Area and the Sunk Outer Precautionary Area. Three TSSs will lead traffic into and out of the Outer Area. Traffic within the Outer Area will flow in a counter-clockwise direction around an area to be avoided, one nautical mile in diameter, centred on a light-vessel in position 51° 50' .10N. , 1° 46' .02E. The light-vessel will be fitted with an Automatic Identification System.
3. A two-way route is to be created from Kentish Knock Buoy (51° 38' .09N. , 1° 40' .43E. ) to Long Sand Head Buoy (51° 47' .91N. , 1° 39' .43E. ). This route can be used by vessels entering or leaving Medway/ Thames ports which meet certain pilotage requirements. It can also be used by any vessel of less than 20 metres in length, any sailing vessel or any vessel engaged in fishing irrespective of their port of origin/ destination. A recommended route is also to be created in the Galloper area to take regular ferry traffic into or out of the Sunk Outer Precautionary Area.
4. These changes are shown on the accompanying diagram.
5. In addition, the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) rules for the area are to be revised and extended and buoyage is to be amended and repositioned.

In addition, the new folios will also include the incorporation of a further 28 pages of Notices to Mariners helping to improve the safety and convenience of navigation in the area. These New Edition folios enable everyone sailing in and around the Thames Estuary to be confident that they have the very latest charting information available.

Each Admiralty Leisure Chart Folio is available in one convenient pack offering incredible value, excellent area coverage and being A2, they are the perfect size for the chart table.
