Officials chalk out plan to develop Hejamadi port

Hejamadi (Padubidri), Nov 22, 2012, DHNS: 22:39 IST
The officers from the Central and the State government departments who visited Hejamadi on Wednesday, have chalked out a plan to develop second phase of the minor fisheries port which is an ignored state.

The local fishermen have been expressing their anguish over Hejamadi port which has remained unused and they have been demanding for de-silting the port. Following the visit from a Pune based team, CICEF team visited the spot in the backdrop of demands to construct breakwater for the development of the port.

Speaking during the visit, State Fisheries Department Joint Director Gangadhar V Madikeri said that along with the construction of break water, a jetty too will be developed in Hejamadi.

As the estuary where Shambhavi river joins the sea has moved South-wards, sand is generated for about two kilometers on the Northern side, the same land will be used new port project. Two committees from the Central government have visited the spot and examined it.

Continuous surveys will be again conducted from January 1 and from February 10 to 20, based on which a project report will be prepared. The State government will send the report to the Central government and try to implement the project by next March, he assured.

As the soil test is compulsory prior to the construction of break water, the State Fisheries Department has conducted the test and it will send the soil to Pune team for testing. The construction of break water will depend on the result of soil test.
CWPRS, Pune Joint Director Kandale M D, Senior researcher Mahalingaiah M V and others were in the team.
