A week back we went for a walk around the Mount. It was a little misty and fairly dark.
This is what we found.
The backhoe digger (spudded to the harbour bed with the retractable pedestals) drops rocks and sand into the barge alongside. This is part of the project to deepen the main channels so Tauranga can handle larger container ships. The backhoe dredge looks after all the difficult corners and inaccessible areas that the main trailer suction dredge can't get to.
