Coastal Erosion: Marine Drive HighwaySinks

Coastal Erosion Marine Drive Road Sinks

Marine Drive Highway in Cox’s Bazar is crumbling into the Bay of Bengal as a result of heavy waves triggered by sea stage rise.

One third portion of the Teknaf’s Sabrang part of the street has gone into the ocean. About 60 meters of the street in West Mundar Dale space of Teknaf have already been broken by the wave. Erosion has begun in varied components of streets in Bahar Chara space.

In response to locals, the ocean’s rising water stage, as a result of the stormy climate, has weakened the street’s protecting geo-bags, with the ocean slowly swallowing the street.

Teknaf Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mohammad Kamruzzaman stated the street has been experiencing breakages as a result of the tough climate. In addition, the ocean’s water stage is at the moment a lot greater than regular and the ocean’s waves have brought on breakages in a number of components of the Marine Drive Highway. The Military has already began to work and they’ll have the ability to restore these quickly.  

Lined with the world’s longest sea seashore on one aspect and mountains enveloped in greenery on the opposite, this scenic route is now beneath risk.

The development of the 80-kilometre street from Cox’s Bazar to Teknaf, generally known as Marine Drive, the longest of its sort on the planet, began in 2017.
