Manginapudi is one among the list of beaches to be developed along the Andhra Pradesh coastline as a part of the coastal corridor project between Visakhapatnam and Nellore. The AP State Govt intends to make Manginapudi one of the prime beaches that will elevate the face of tourism.
Excise Minister K. Ravindra spoke to the media on Sunday and said that Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu had given the nod to the proposal with a view of developing the beach into one of the tourist attractions near Amaravati.
A team of officials led by Tourism Secretary N. Srikant had lately studied the feasibility of developing the Machilipatnam coast. The government was also toying with the idea of inviting IIT-Madras to suggest ways of developing the beach and Machilipatnam coast into a tourist hub.
“Expansion of the Machilipatnam-Manginapudi beach road will be taken up soon at an estimated cost of Rs. 13 crore. The 10-km stretch will be expanded into a four-lane one,” Mr. Ravindra said.
Earlier in the day, Mr. Ravindra laid the foundation stone for laying a road between the beach road and Pedda Karagraharam. The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development extended Rs.1.5 crore for the project. Manginapudi is one of the safest beaches in Krishna district.
