23 February 2018 - 179   - 0

The second stage of the Delft Jetty Project which was completed by the Sri Lanka Navy was declared open during a ceremony yesterday (Feb 22). With the completion of the second stage, the Jetty will have a depth of two meters and will allow fishing trawlers, passenger ferries and the sea ambulance to dock with ease.

Sri Lanka Navy undertook the construction of the Jetty with financial provisions being made by the Ministry of Prison Reforms, Rehabilitation, Resettlement and Hindu Religious Affairs. Under the first phase 101 feet long and 31 feet wide pier was constructed and was vested on the public in March last year (2017), the government news portal reported.

This Jetty will ease the mobility of the people of the islet to and from the mainland and will also be a boon to the economic rejuvenation of the Northern Peninsula.
