The Crestway

The Crestway, seen here near North Shields, has been dredging the River Tyne, on behalf of The Port of Tyne, for over a month now, keeping the river clear for shipping access to the increasingly busy port.

The Crestway is a trailing suction hopper dredger  and was launched at the IHC Merwede yard in Kinderdijk, Netherlands  on Friday 16 May 2008.

The comings and goings of the Crestway and other shipping movements  in and out of the Tyne can be followed  on the Port of Tyne website
