The Republic of Maldives’ Housing Development Corporation (HDC) said in its latest announcement that the land reclamation operations to develop the Hulhule – Hulhumale link road will end this week.
“We believe that by 4th October, we will be able to finish all the reclamation works. Once it is completed, we will be ready to start the shore protection works to safeguard the reclaimed area,” said HDC Managing Director Mohamed Saiman.
Saiman further said that with the increase in population in Hulhumale, he expects the highway to become an important development that will be frequently used by residents of Male, Hulhumale and visitors.
“It is the aim of the government to ensure that the citizens can use the highway to enter and exit Hulhumale without any difficulties,” he added.
According to HDC, the Hulhule-Hulhumale highway will be compliant with international standards, and will be four kilometers long, with four lanes.
The highway will be able to accommodate all vehicles, irrespective of size, and will be paved with full water, electric and sewerage services, reports HDC.
