Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) successfully concluded the ADh. Kunburudhoo Shore Protection Project.
Kunburadhoo’s allure lies in its pristine beaches and tranquil surroundings, making it a sought-after destination for visitors. However, the livelihoods of most of its inhabitants primarily hinge on employment within the local resorts. The persistent issue of coastal erosion has shadowed the island’s scenic charm for some time, affecting the shoreline from north to south.
The successful completion of this shore protection project is poised to provide respite from this long-standing concern. As a result, Kunburadhoo’s coastal erosion woes are anticipated to be resolved, ensuring the preservation of its natural beauty.
The comprehensive scope of this endeavour encompasses several key components, including 24,000 cubic meters of dredging and reclamation operations, a 430-meter rock boulder revetment, a 280-meter geo bag revetment, and 7,171 cubic meters of beach replenishment operations.
This project is valued at MVR 21.14 million.
