In the French Region of La Reunion, DEME Group’s backhoe dredger Pinocchio continues the works for the Nouvelle Route du Littoral.

DEME is executing the dredging, gravel bed installation and backfilling works of the 48 gravity-based foundations for the 5,400 m highway viaduct.

The Nouvelle Route du Littoral program, being executed for the account of La Réunion, consists of preparation and foundation works for a dike offshore the existing ‘Route du Littoral’ between the regional capital Saint-Denis and La Possession.

According to DEME, a trench has to be dredged wherein consequently rocks are placed using a side stone-dumping vessel. Also part of the project is the installation of a scour protection.
