TBS reported today that according to a government source, a Defense Ministry report has estimated that the fortification of soft seabed found in the northeastern part of the Henoko landfill site will take three years and eight months. While the Defense Ministry has admitted that soft seabed has been found, this is the first time it has estimated the time required for the fortification work. TBS said that although a senior ministry official asserts that other construction work can take place while fortification is being done, it surmised that this additional procedure will “inevitably” prolong the relocation process.
