The project involves reclaiming approximately 160 hectares of new land requiring in excess of 20 million cubic meters of dredged sand.

Two jumbo trailing suction hopper dredgers will be deployed for the dredging and reclamation activities sourcing sand from local borrow areas.

Soil improvement and rock revetment works also form part of the project. Work will commence immediately and the project is expected to be completed in 2018.
