Kupang to Get New Breakwater
Dr. Basuki Hadimuljono, the Minister of Public Works and Public Housing, has agreed to build 500 meter long breakwater along the beach of Namosasin, in the city of Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara, according to the Antara News.
“During his visit here on Sunday the Public Works and Housing Minister promised to provide the budget for the breakwater project,” Kupang Mayor Jonas Salean said.
Mayor Salean added that the minister agreed to build the breakwater after inspecting the location in the beach.
The breakwater is important for the security of the local people and tourists visiting that area, he said.
The Kupang city administration already built a 200-meter long breakwater in that location but the beach area needs longer breakwater to prevent abrasion and protect the people living along the beach area when the tide is high.
