Following the severe weather conditions brought about by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) suspended shipping in the Port of Gladstone mid-morning.
Due to heavy rainfall and severe winds up to 80km per hour, Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) ceased ship loading operations and closed access to its stockpiles at RG Tanna Coal Terminal (RGTCT) in Gladstone earlier today.
As the weather conditions eased this afternoon, a site inspection was conducted and GPC has recommending ship loading at RGTCT, with MSQ expected to reopen the Port of Gladstone later this evening allowing coal vessels to depart.
GPC Parks & Recreation Team have commenced clean-up activities at Spinnaker Park, Gladstone Marina and East Shores Precinct parklands, and with parkland clean-ups expected to continue throughout Friday, residents are encouraged to be mindful of debris if planning on visiting our parklands.
Auckland Point Terminal will also berth P&O Cruises’ Pacific Pearl on Friday 31 March as scheduled, with the Feast on East markets being held between 8am and 4pm in GPC’s East Shores Precinct.
Event organisers, Gladstone Area Promotion & Development Limited, will advise of any changes to the Feast on East markets if weather conditions change overnight.
As the system moves south, necessary precautions have also been undertaken at our Port of Bundaberg facility. GPC will continue to work closely with MSQ to monitor conditions across the three port precincts.
These are the Vessels in Port currently as at 5.59pm today.
