Sea Grab: Work starts on Monaco’s €2bn ‘extension’

Extraordinary 'offshore urban extension project' will add a whole new district to the glitzy principality

Construction firm Bouygues has started work on a €2bn project to add six hectares (15 acres) to the Principality of Monaco – by building on the sea.

The plan – which is actually a scaled-down version of the €10bn version put forward in 2008 – is to pile up a massive embankment of Sicilian sand and keep it in place with a belt of 26-metre high reinforced concrete blocks, weighing 10,000 tonnes each.
