Three observation posts will be built at Mont Choisy, Flic-en-Flac and on the side of Belle Mare. Two other platforms will also be built on the beach of Blue Bay and the last will be located in Tamarin.
Coast Guard will be assigned to those checkpoints to prevent further tragedies with swimmers in difficulty in the lagoons.
Each monitoring platform constructed will require an investment of 100,000 rupees * per tower built. The monitoring system will also see two personal climbing up the platform and will be assisted by coastguards patrolling the beach and sea.
* One euro roughly equivalent to 39 rupees
