The land extension project at Portier Cove is entering a new phase with the dredging of unpolluted marine sediments, which will be then deposited off Monaco. It follows several operations to relocate marine plants and other fauna to protected areas, in order to minimise the environmental impact of the project. The next stage, starting in December, will involve the laying of the backfill on which the foundations will rest.
