The project site is a long narrow spit, surrounded by the Arabian Sea on the west and Udyavara river on the east. A 9 km long fisheries road, which runs along the spit that connects Malpe fishing harbour to the nearby villages is under constant threat from erosion. The proposed coastal protection scheme at Udyavara includes protecting a shoreline length of 5km by providing 35 numbers of shore normal rock groynes spaced at an interval of 120m and nourishing the beach with a total volume 720,000m3 of sand. The total estimated cost of the proposed scheme at Udyavara is $15.05 Million.
