HDC Staff Take Field Trip to Kudagiri Picnic Island Before its Opening

For a change of environment, the staff and management of Housing Development Corporation (HDC) have taken a field trip to Kudagiri. They visited the island to get it ready for its grand opening, and engaged in various activities such as painting, tree planting and cleaning.

Kudagiri is under development as a picnic island for residents of the Greater Male’ Region. Eight hectares of land were reclaimed by the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) for the development of the island. MTCC is developing the beaches and shore protection structures of the island, as well as jetty, reception and staff accommodation.

The masterplan of the picnic island was developed by HDC. Managing Director of HDC Suhail Ahmed stated that all services except accommodation will be available when the island is opened to the public. As such, public toilets, changing rooms, huts and water sports facilities will all be made available.

Currently, residents of the Greater Male’ Region do not have a convenient picnic location. The opening of Kudagiri will provide a much needed island getaway to the residents of the nation’s capital.
