Much of Georgetown and the coastline moving east is about 1.5m below sea level, with the sea managed using a system of dykes and pumps, in combination with tides.
A mud flat extends offshore up to 20km, requiring boats to access the shore base according to the tides.
The land planned for the extended shore base required significant work to handle the loading. The coastline is soft sediment and organic material built up over an extended period.
