Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC), on Tuesday night, began laying asphalt on Ameenee Magu, one the of major roads in Male’ City presently undergoing redevelopment.
Although the redevelopment of Ameenee Magu was contracted to Road Development Corporation (RDC) by the Planning Ministry – asphalt works on the road are being undertaken by MTCC on a sub-contractor basis.
MTCC said that their aim is to complete asphalt works on the three redeveloped segments of Ameenee Magu by tonight.
Delays in asphalt works of the redeveloped segments of Ameenee Magu have been of great concern to the public due to difficulties in accessibility obstructing transportation as the area is frequented by pedestrians and motorists.
Male’ City Council had first initiated the redevelopment of Ameenee Magu. However, the project was overtaken by Planning Ministry, which contracted the work to RDC for double the value at MVR 8.4 million.
Under the project, RDC was tasked with developing 7.1 kilometers of asphalt road, installing a storm drain system, and installing street lights.
