Mayor of Malé City, Sifa Mohamed has revealed that garden park being constructed in the place of Lonuziyaaraiy Kolhu, an empty lot near Sinamale’ bridge is planned to be opened in January. The mayor has stated that the council was working in order to open the garden park to the public by November 11, but that it was postponed due to other unrelated issues at the council.
“We have made efforts to speed up the work after receiving the letter from the President’s Office with the request. We have sped up the work as much as possible as per the laws allow. We have contracted out work for 20 days via the bid committee. We cannot assign work to separate people without involving the bid committee.” Malé City Mayor, Sifa Mohamed stated.
Prior to the construction of Sinamale’ Bridge, the Lonuziyaaraiy Kolhu was allocated for helicopter landings by the government.
