The Newcastle Port Corporation in New South Wales, Australia, has submitted an environmental assessment application for a proposed plan to dredge the south arm of the Hunter River, creating ten new shipping berths.

The dredging will cost A$50m ($50.30) and will remove more than three million cubic metres of material from the river.

The new berths will be located along the foreshore at Walsh Point at disused berth sites at Kooragang, Dyke Point and the former BHP steelworks wharf area.

It is estimated that about 40% of the dredged material will be dumped offshore and the remainder used as fill, according to abc.net.au.
