Plans afoot for Rs.340 cr port upgrade

    port upgrade
    The expansion and modernization of Kanyakumari Port and various other initiatives under the Sagarmala scheme are all set to be roll out including making Kanyakumari port a tourist hub and expand and modernize the Kanyakumari Port at a cost of Rs.340 crore. The projects included building modern berths, cruise vessels and tourist transit station facilities. Since the Kanyakumari Port has been dredged to a depth of only two metres, plans are underway to dredge the entrance of this port and basin to six metres. This would increase the cruise tourism by sea to other destinations such as Tiruvananthapuram, Rameswaram, Puducherry and Chennai. There is also a proposal to build a marine bridge linking the Vivekananda Memorial Rock with the Thiruvallur statue. Both the memorials are located in the islands at a distance of 150 metres and do not have connectivity and plans are also afoot to construct a modern marine elevated steel cable bridge at a cost of Rs.125 crore for safe traveling of tourists.
