The AMO office initially reported to the elected officials the agitation studies conducted on the navigability constraints in the channel and the protection of the wharves in the event of strong swell. Geotechnical studies have also shown that the materials to be dredged at the bottom of the ocean (3 millions of m3) are quite malleable, and therefore less difficult to dredge. These materials will then be reused in the design of the earthenware. The development of the two terrepleins (north and south) was also discussed, with the creation of hotels, luxury residences, green spaces, service facilities and parking facilities.
