The overall consensus is that the Sand Motor has been a success. Although it is still too early to indicate the long-term consequences of this kind of large-scale beach nourishment, the success stories told about the Sand Motor tend to muffle the critical ones (Page 34). So, how did the Sand Motor come to be perceived as “successful”? And does the Sand Motor’s proclaimed success serve as a promise for future largescale projects using sand? As we shall see, “framing” can provide a valuable lens to understand how this general consensus developed, and why critical stories have had a hard time surviving in the political debate as well as in society.
