5th Newsletter – December 2015

Access Road

We are pleased to announce that the reclamation of the access road has been completed and visitors can now drive directly from the end of Freedom Road to the Island.  The Island was linked on 8 December 2015. The new road has views of the lagoon on both sides. Even though the Island has been linked, it is still work in progress. Sand filling will continue in order to attain the right width and levels.
Reclamation of the Island is still progressing with 102 hectares dredged to date.
