Recent updates by Ilodrones on social media showed to the world updates on the new Coastal road of Reunion Island. The project the world has named the “Didier Robert’s Highway” of Reunion remains the project of the century for the island.

Ilodrones said in its recent post that very soon the new coastal road will be joined to St. Denis itself and that all that remains for this to happen is three more of the pilling works pieces. “The road works is progressing at a fast pace” Ilodrones said.


This new highway will change the lives of the Reunionais for good. The days when the existing coastal road had to be closed because of heavy rain is finished and closures happened so frequently disrupting the lives of all the Reunionais. The new highway under construction in the sea will be operational 365 days of the year and is seen as a masterpiece and one of the most expensive highways undertaken by Europe.


It was President Didier Robert, the President of the Regional Council of Reunion who has been standing behind this project against all odds. He believed that this new highway was a necessity for the people of Reunion Island and he campaigned for the project which is now becoming a reality.
