Ponnani: To resist sea attacks, the government has given permission to set up geotextile tube project to the tune of Rs 2.81 crore instead of sea wall on the shores. The amount has been allotted for the project in 5 dangerous areas from Puthuponnani to Ponnani coast.
Places like Murinjazhi, Hilar pally, Mayilanchikkad are more prone for sea attacks as more houses were damaged in these areas. Funds are allotted in areas were emergency reconstructions are required. The project is used to prevent soil from flowing to the sea. The project will be implemented with the special order from Speaker P Sreeramakrishnan.
