23 Jun Land reclamation component of K. Maafushi Land Reclamation & Shore Protection project is complete
Land reclamation component of K. Maafushi Land Reclamation & Shore Protection project is complete as of 14th June 2020. 25 hectares were reclaimed under this project. The first rock boulder barge needed for shore protection works is set to arrive on 25th June 2020.
The reclamation concept is a detached separate island connected to the main island via a causeway. The proposed reclamation design is based on introducing more beach areas during reclamation and to bring a solution to the high demand of residential plots on the island.
The value of the contract is estimated at MVR 99.98 million. The project was awarded to us by the the Ministry of Planning, Housing and Infrastructure on 27th August 2019 and is a key electoral pledge to the people of Maafushi.
