CHIOGGIA INLET








Chioggia inlet -



Outside the inlet, a 520 m long curved breakwater has been completed.

Work at the north side of the inlet is also at an advanced state of completion, with construction underway of a protected small craft harbour with two locks to guarantee access to the lagoon for a large number of fishing vessels when the gates are in operation during a high water event. The "abutments" for the row of gates are also under construction. 



CHIOGGIA AND THE ISLAND OF PELLESTRINA ARE AT THE SOUTHERN END OF THE LAGOON



Lastly, large sections of the bed have been protected with layers of rock near the areas where the rows of gates will be installed.





 Employment -


Currently about 700 people are employed directly, while after completion.

When in full activity, the work sites will guarantee a total of about 1.500 direct jobs.
