MTCC begins Maafushi reclamation project

Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) have begun the land reclamation project of K. Maafushi.

Advisor to President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, Mohamed Shihab attended the event held at Maafushi today. The project was handed over to MTCC last August. The company received the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) on December 12th, following which they moved necessary equipment to the island last Saturday.

Planning Ministry revealed that the project expected to finish within 249 days will bring a solution to the high demand of residential plots and the lack of a bigger beach area in the island.

25 hectares of land is to be reclaimed under the project which is valued at MVR 99 million. A 1,110 meter revetment wall is also to be installed, according to the Planning Ministry.
