  • Replacement of treated planks  
  • Replacement of steel plates   
  • Rebuilt of the downstream nose frame at the South Pier, which will include new timber piles  

Works will be completed using a marine spud derrick equipped with a vibratory and/or drop hammer. All removed timbers will be sent to licensed disposal facilities.
