Parks and recreation: Rs 116cr facelift for RK beachfront | Visakhapatnam News

Visakhapatnam: The city’s famous RK Beach stretch is getting ready for a makeover. Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) has finalised tenders to redevelop the beach front at a cost of Rs 116crore. The beachfront redevelopment project will stretch approximately 3.5 kilometres in length and will be divided into four zones, according to the detailed project report (DPR).
Major components of the project include a 3km-long retaining wall, three parks, a 3km-long cycling track, walking track, increased parking facilities, plazas, beach access, upgrade of existing shops, public toilets, drinking water etc.
The beach redevelopment project has been so conceptualised that the development blends into the natural landscape. Further, increasing connectivity along the beachfront and improving the streetscape are also part of the agenda. The master plan was prepared keeping site context, ecology, landform, traffic flow, biodiversity and traditional livelihood activities in mind.
GVMC chief engineer M Venkateswara Rao said that the bids were finalised around two weeks ago. “The bidder has to complete the project in 18 months. A single continuous service road will be laid to close the discontinuity between existing service roads,” said the chief engineer.
“The project will give a complete makeover to the RK Beach stretch right from adding a cycling track, a walking track, more parks, increasing greenery and provisioning better public amenities,” Venkateswara Rao added.
The 2014 Cyclone Hudhud had devastated several districts of Andhra Pradesh, including Visakhapatnam. Following the cyclone, World Bank approved credit of US$250 million towards the Andhra Pradesh Disaster Recovery Project (APDRP). Counterpart funding of US$120 million will be done by the state government in the ratio of 68:32.
Of the six components of APDRP, protection and restoration of the beachfront is the third.
The project seeks to restore damages due to disasters while increasing resilience of infrastructure and communities from future impacts of natural disasters and climate change. The three major components of APDRP are: safety and disaster resilience, community resilience and education and awareness related components to protect natural assets.

Cook Islands


Visiting Aitutaki

Lagoon, Cook

Islands for your vacation is one of the best vacation

destination decisions you may ever make. The Aitutaki lagoon is as

idyllic a place as you will ever find; many poets and writers have spun

thousands of lines describing its wonders and beauty. Matriki Beach

Huts was built on the foundation that all people should be able to

enjoy this splendor without the high costs associated with such remote

travel. Aitutaki lagoon offers snorkeling, 


diving, fishing,


watching, picnicking

on beautiful

beaches, sailing, kayaking,

and much more. While snorkeling, you can view a myriad of colorful

fish and see first-hand the

giant clams of Aitutaki and the South Pacific; these clams

are now protected in four separate reserves in the Aitutaki lagoon. Bone

fishing is a thrill all its own – although we don’t eat the

fish they are truly a rush to stalk and catch. Fishing

for pelagic species outside of the Aitutaki lagoon offers up Yellow

Fin Tuna (Ahi), Dorado

(dolphin fish), Wahoo,

and array of jacks and snapper. Bring some of your catch back for the

BBQ. At Matriki we practice fishing conservation – never kill what you

can’t eat in a few days, and never kill billfish.

The local Aitutaki scuba

diving operator

will safely show you some of the Cook Islands best diving; they are

safe, reliable, and very knowledgeable. Matriki has Hobie cats for

hire, sail the Aitutaki lagoon and discover what all the fuss is about

for yourself. Your hosts are always there to answer questions, take you

on tours, sailing adventures, fishing trips, and more.
