Sungai Kurau (Bagan Serai) (Malaysia)

Characteristics

Description

The Sungai Kurau enters the sea about 5 miles SSE of Tanjong Piandang. The Sungai Kurau is navigable at HW by craft drawing 1.8m, about 15 miles upstream.

Selinsing Bay is shallow and forms the entrance to the Sungai Sangga Besar, the main approach to Port Weld, and the SungaiSelinsing. The bay is bounded by Tanjong Pasir to the N, and a point about 3 miles SW.
Tanjong Pasir may be recognized by the sandy beaches on the N and S sides of it. The shores of the bay are fringed with wide, drying mud banks which reduce the width of the channels into the two rivers to 0.75 mile and the two separate river channels to 0.25 mile.

The extent and shape of these banks are subject to frequent change.

The main bar at the entrance to Selinsing Bay lies close S of Tanjong Pasir with depths of from 0.3 to 0.6m.
