Covid-19 pandemic delayed completion of first phase

GOA: The Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the completion of the first phase of the floating jetties, with just one of the four floating jetties being commissioned till date. The pandemic and the subsequent austerity measures imposed by the state government have also brought construction of the captain of ports terminal to a halt, officials said.

“In the first phase, four jetties were planned but because of the pandemic, things got delayed. We are trying to get the jetties commissioned in another four to five months,” a government official said. All four jetties, funded by Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI), were to be installed at Rs 10 crore by the contractor, REL Marintek Infra Pvt Ltd. The first concrete floating jetty, and the first in the country, was inaugurated by Union minister of state for shipping Mansukh Mandaviya in February. At that time, Mandaviya and state authorities said the remaining floating jetties would be installed in four months.
