A NUMBER of people have recently been caught entering restricted zone areas within the Port of Gladstone.
Gladstone Ports Corporation has put out a timely reminder to members of the community that they are not permitted to fish off or stand upon, under or around any wharves or bund walls within the Port of Gladstone.
Restricted areas of reclaimed land such as those at Fisherman's Landing can be unstable and pose significant safety risks to the public.
Restrictions have been developed for security zones within the Port of Gladstone where a vessel must not enter, stop or anchor, unless it is authorised to do so by an officer of Gladstone Ports Corporation Ltd.
Failure to comply with these restrictions is an offence against the Transport Infrastructure Act 1994 and penalties of 100 penalty units for each offence apply.
