RDC asked to obtain necessary permits for Ameenee Magu construction

The government has asked the Road Development Corporation (RDC) to complete the administrative requirements and obtain the necessary permits for the reconstruction of Male' City's Ameenee Magu.

The RDC was asked to complete administrative procedures after the company laid pipeline through dewatering from the groundwater layer without obtaining the necessary permit.

Environment Ministry State Minister Ali Solih told AVAS that the Energy Regulatory Authority had asked the RDC to complete some administrative works required for the road construction. RDC said if there is any administrative work to be done, the company will complete the process and that there would be no interruption to road construction.

The practical work of tarring Ameenee Magu was inaugurated on August 30. A section of the road has now been closed to start work, from the Boduthakurufaanu Magu and Ameenee Magu junction to the Irudheymaa Hingun and Ameenee Magu junction.

The government awarded the contract to construct Ameenee Magu to RDC on July 3 for MVR 84 million. The work is expected to reach completion in seven months. Asphalt will be laid along 1.7 km of the road, and a modern drainage system will be installed under the project. While streetlights will also be reinstalled, bus stops, signboards, and bumpers will also be constructed.
