New dredging site to supply sand for Area A reclamation project


The Infrastructure Development Office announced on Wednesday the establishment of a new dredging site – with the support of the authorities of Guangdong Province – to supply sand for the land reclamation work in Macao relating to the new urban zone known as Area A. The new dredging site is located south of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. Sand extraction at the new site is however technically more challenging than in the area previously used. The Office said it would strive to develop new solutions in the coming months to ensure a stable supply of sand for the Area A land reclamation project. Land reclamation works for Area A were originally due to be completed by last December. The schedule however was affected by the February 2015 closure of the dredging site that supplied sand for the works. The former dredging site was located north of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. It was closed due to works related to the bridge’s construction.
