The Road Development Corporation Limited (RDC) has initiated the redevelopment process for the eighth segment of Ameenee Magu, marking a significant step in the ongoing road improvement project. Originally intending to close off the section between Billabong High International School and Maafannu Stadium, RDC has expanded the road closure to include the Galolhu Police Post area due to the presence of schools and office buildings.
In an effort to enhance the road infrastructure, RDC has already opened the seventh segment of Ameenee Magu for public use. Workers have now commenced fieldwork on the eighth segment, clearing away stones and preparing the necessary groundwork for pipes and cables. Additionally, the corporation is proactively replacing existing trees on the road with more suitable alternatives that better align with the surrounding environment.
Recognized as one of the busiest thoroughfares in Male’ City, Ameenee Magu serves as a vital artery due to its proximity to numerous office buildings and educational institutions. As one of the few roads spanning the length of the capital city, it plays a crucial role in facilitating traffic flow and connecting various areas. However, the road has suffered from poor conditions for an extended period, causing inconvenience for both vehicles and pedestrians alike.
The comprehensive road development project entails resurfacing the entire 1.7-kilometer stretch of Ameenee Magu with high-quality asphalt, while also implementing a new stormwater drainage system.
