‘Triple dike’ design aids Shenzhen coastal resilience

A project designed by a team from two Dutch companies to strengthen the resilience of coastal communities to the east of the Chinese city of Shenzhen reached a landmark at the start of May. A completed demonstration section of redeveloped shoreline on the Dapeng peninsula was opened to the public. We hear from Ruurd Gietema of KCAP and Michiel van Driessche of FELIXX on the innovative East Dike coastal defence project.
