Installation of five new speed buoys

The proposed project

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority's Marine Operations department have applied to install five speed buoys in lower Indian Arm. Three buoys will be installed just south of Boulder Island and two buoys will be installed to the east of Jug Island. The speed buoys are self-weighted and will not require anchoring to the seafloor. Buoys will be installed by barge mounted crane and take approximately one day to complete. The Marine Operations team are also proposing to install five "5 knot, no wash" signs on two existing navigation beacons located west of Belcarra. For specific locations please see the port authority website.
