The project site is located in Udupi district. Maravanthe project site is flanked by Arabian sea on the west and Souparnika river on the east forming a narrow isthmus on which the National Highway 66 (NH-66) runs, connecting Mumbai to Kochi. The proposed intervention involves protecting a shoreline length of 3.5 km by 15 numbers of shore normal groynes on the southern and northern parts of project site and 9 numbers of T-groynes at middle section where NH-66 runs close to the sea and river. Sand redistribution is proposed to enhance the beach width at critical sections. The total estimated cost of the proposed scheme at Maravanthe is $ 13.24 Million.
