Eight Floating Jetty projects 4 each in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka Sanctioned
In order to improve the nation’s socioeconomic and regulatory environment, the Ministry of Ports, Shipping, and Waterways has promoted a variety of reforms and initiatives in the maritime sector as part of the Sagarmala Programme. One of the Ministry’s main goals is to advance and create an ecosystem of floating jetties, which, when compared to fixed jetties, offers a lot of benefits such being more ecologically friendly, lasting longer, and having a modular design.
The Ministry has given in-principle approval to 4 more projects under the Sagarmala programme, bringing the total number of floating jetty projects in Karnataka to 11. These projects, which will be used for tourism, are mostly situated on the Gurupura and Netravati rivers. Thannir Bhavi Church, Bangra Kuluru, Kulur Bridge, and Jappina Mogaru NH bridge are the additional locations.
