Vishakhapatnam Port Launches ₹57.26 Cr Coastal Conservation Project

Vishakhapatnam Port Authority (VPA) has started a project to protect Ramakrishna Beach and the Submarine Museum from erosion and preserve their natural beauty. The project will last three years and cost ₹57.26 crores. In the first phase, they plan to pump 6.3 lakh cubic meters of sand onto the beach, and in the second phase, 2.1 lakh cubic meters, costing ₹19.09 crores. This sand pumping will take place for 30 days each year. VPA chairman Madhaiyaan Angamuthu said they are determined to fight beach erosion by adding sand to the beach from the outer harbor’s sand trap. This collaborative effort with the state government aims to maintain the beauty of Vizag’s coastline. The project will use modern dredging equipment to move sand from the port to the beach through a floating pipeline stretching 0.50 kilometers. Officials from VPA and DCI attended the inauguration ceremony.
