Mormugao Port Trust (MPT) has floated a tender for the design and commissioning of three concrete floating jetties on Mandovi (NW 68) and one on Chapora (NW 25).
Quoting officials, a TOI report said the estimated cost of all the four floating jetties is pegged at Rs 13 crore. This development comes just months after the tripartite memorandum of understanding was signed between the Goa government, Mormugao Port Trust and Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI).
A MPT official was quoted as saying in the report that the project is being implemented on behalf of IWAI. It has also appointed consultants to do a techno-feasibility study of the projects, which are being undertaken under the national waterways project.
The report further said the four floating jetties include extension of Captain of Ports Jetty at Panaji and Old Goa, the city jetty opposite of Dempo House, and jetty in Chapora river on the west side of the Siolim-Chopdem bridge.
