Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) has taken over the protection of the beach in the dredged area under the Meemu atoll Dhiggaru Land Expansion Project.

MTCC CEO Adam Azim signed the agreement on behalf of the company at a ceremony held yesterday. Planning Ministry's Permanent Secretary Zeeniya Hameed signed on behalf of the government.

According to MTCC, the project will involve the installation of Geotube revetment in an area of ​​1470 meters.
