The gates of the tidal lock have been closed and the wharves are not used. The old wharves are partially destroyed and are used by fishing vessels. A new wharf, 60m long, lies E of the old wharves and is also used by fishing vessels.
Groynes are under development to protect the entrance to the creek and to increase depths at the entrance.
Depths in the approach to the port range from 11m, about 5.3 mile E of the entrance of the creek, to a depth of 1.8m about 1 mile offshore. The mouth of the creek is blocked by sand banks and can only be navigated at HW by vessels with a draft of less than 1.5m.
