PORT TRAFFIC CONTROL, TEES; DEVELOPMENT OF SYSTEM AND TRAINING OF PERSONNEL

The traffic control system on the Tees has evolved through the years through a general safety consciousness on the part of all concerned and has been facilitated by free communication and discussion, particularly between the port services on operational matters and with the shipping and port industries who have readily accepted any constraints imposed in the interests of safety. A high degree of cooperation stimulated by the Tees Liasion Panel which meets monthly and is representative of all the port services, e.g., pilots, tugs, boatmen, port authority, ships' agents and whart owners, with the harbor master as chairman. Essentials in the matter of port traffic control in addition to traffic control signals were harbor surveillance radar and a good VHF/radio telephone service. The paper outlines the background of the system, equipment, training courses, extent of control and safety regulations.
