The project includes the construction and installation of a reinforced concrete levee wall to the height of the existing levee, with 5m-tall bollards installed on top, and vegetation removal along a 45m enforcement zone along the length of the wall.

The enforcement zone will also include detection technology, lighting, video surveillance and an all-weather patrol road running parallel to the levee wall.
