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.
