Floating Jetty For Tourists at St. Mary’s Island in Udupi to be Ready Soon: Government Approves Project

The State government has given administrative approval for building a floating jetty for landing of tourists at St. Mary’s island near Udupi. The approval for ₹5.5 crore project was given on February 24.

Udupi MLA Raghupathi Bhat said that the government has also given  administrative approval for a ₹24.25 crore project for replacing conventional streetlights in the jurisdiction of Udupi City Municipality with LED lights. The project will be taken up on public private partnership (PPP) model. More than 20,000 LED lights will be installed under the project. Once switched over to LED lights, Udupi City Municipality can save 80% of its electricity bills. In addition, ₹1.2 crore annual maintenance cost can be saved. Once the LED lights which are “smart lights” are installed their malfunctioning can be monitored in the command control centre to be set up in the office of the municipality. There will be a centralised control and monitoring system to monitor their functioning. Later such lights can be replaced easily.
