Union Minister of State for Shipping Mansukh Mandaviya inaugurated the country’s first floating jetty here and an immigration facility at a cruise terminal in Vasco at Goa. The jetty is located in the state port department’s premises on the banks of Mandovi river.
This floating jetty is the first such facility in the country. It is made of cement concrete. It will boost inland waterways. They are environment-friendly and can be built in a short time. “Jetty” refers to a walkway accessing the centre of an enclosed waterbody. The floating jetty is quick to install and can be shifted from one place to another.
