Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) hosted a ceremony on Monday to mark the official commencement of work on the Ha. Hoarafushi Airport Coastal Protection Project.
In July, the Ministry of National Planning, Housing, and Infrastructure awarded the coast protection project to MTCC.
This project will include the construction of a 2,861-meter quay wall on both sides of the runway, as well as the construction of a concrete culvert on the causeway connecting Hoarafushi to the airport.
The project has an estimated value of MVR 90.5 million and is scheduled to complete within 360 days.
