Cutbona Fishing Jetty in Goa to soon get a 50-seater bathroom facility

50 new toilets at the jetty will cost around ₹95 lakhs and are awaiting approval.

The fisheries department of Porvorim, the de facto executive and legislative capital of Goa, will soon be getting a 50-seater bathroom facility costing ₹95 lakhs.

This toilet cum bathroom facility will be constructed at the new fishing jetty at Cutbona in Goa's Velim. The Fisheries Minister Nilkanth Halarnkar confirmed that the proposal for the same has been submitted for approval. M/s Sulabh International Social Service Organisation is assisting the department in the endeavour.

Additional STP to be constructed

The department has also mentioned the construction of a sewage treatment plant (STP), at the Cutbona complex through Goa's sewerage infrastructural development corporation, proposed at ₹75 lakhs. The project is currently in the nascent stages of construction.

Besides two bio-toilets, a 12-seater toilet facility has also been installed with the STP, costing ₹34 lakh. “The same shall be put in operation shortly,” the minister stated.

Santisation of the jetty

Two attendants have been made responsible for maintaining the jetty. The sanitisation is being taken care of by a high-pressure pump to wash fish-waste off the jetty.

The work on the Cutbona Fish Landing Centre includes the upgradation of the fish landing centre and construction of a training wall at Mobor, Halarnkar added.

A 13-seater functional bathroom facility has been operational since 2003 at the Cutbona Jetty in Goa but is not sufficient. Through the new projects, the government is aiming to boost deep sea fishing and, in turn, Goa tourism.
