New security zones around Portier Cove land extension project

A Sovereign Ordinance published in the Journal de Monaco of April 20 regulates four zones to secure the maritime area around the offshore expansion project.

Two maritime zones become prohibited work areas for public access and all maritime activities. Navigation, anchoring and fishing are strictly forbidden; they are delimited by yellow buoys. The first stretches from the Spelugues marine protected area in the west to the Larvotto marine protected area in the east, while the second stretches out to the Larvotto marine area, at the eastern sea border of the Principality.

A further maritime zone prohibits the anchoring and navigation of water-based leisure craft, such as sailboats, scooters and rowing boats, located between the two preceding zones, and a maritime zone prohibits anchoring along the previous zones.

The regulation will come into effect from Tuesday, May 1, 2018, until the end of the construction of the marine infrastructure planned for 2020.
