Urbanco officially launched Phase 3 of the Hulhumale’ land reclamation project this morning.
The overall objective of the project, conducted by Boskalis’ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Willem Van Oranje, is to address the persistent housing crisis in the city, with the entire initiative segmented into multiple phases.
According to Urbanco, the first phase successfully reclaimed 10 hectares of land before a brief pause in operations.
Under the administration of the current government, Phase 2 is actively progressing to reclaim an additional 29 hectares in three distinct stages.
The final phase is set to focus on the reclamation of 63 hectares.
