A spokesperson said, “In the spirit of forward progression, Caroline Bay, Bermuda’s up and coming five-star resort, recently received yet another shipment directly to the Morgan’s Point pier, proving that this historic project is moving in the right direction.”

“On Friday, 28th of October, the project received its second shipment of armour rock, which will be used to create the shoreline for the marina. This brings a total of 11,000 tons of armour rock and 4,000 tons of bedding stone delivered to the site.”

“The process of rock revetment is used to control erosion by armoring the dune face. The rock, in essence, dissipates the energy of storm waves and prevents further recession of the backshore if well designed and maintained.”

    • Concerned says:

      Has there been any environmental impact studies?

      • Concerned says:

        Why has no one ever mentioned the impact.. Dock yard had to get the environmental’s looking into it why not here?

      • What?? says:

        Of course there has been environmental impact studies and even a cursory search of the internet would have answered your knee jerk reaction.

    “…if well-designed and maintained…” Because Bermuda’s record of maintaining its infrastructure is stellar. #SwingBridge #roadworks I hope this “revetment” process doesn’t destroy the good marine life alleged to be around the Morgan’s Point area. Then I don’t suppose nudibranchs make anyone rich now, do they?

    I would think and hope these people are experts, have done their researched on the pros and cons of the area and its environment.
    Do not Panic.. How about the major issue from the previous Government of wasting the tax peoples money by building those wasted buildings on the cliffs of South Shore..

    ‘Moaners’ Point is what it should be called.
    I give up.
