Greater Male Connectivity Project
The Greater Male Connectivity Project (GMCP) is the largest infrastructure project in Maldives. It will be funded by an Indian grant of 100 million USD and a Line of Credit of 400 million USD, making it one of the biggest developmental projects undertaken by India in its neighborhood.
Under this project, 6.74 km long bridge and causeway link will be constructed to connect Male with nearby islands of Villingli, Gulhifalhu and Thilafushi. Prior to this, the largest connectivity project in the atoll was the 1.4 km-long Chinese funded bridge connecting Male with the Maldives airport in Hulhule island and to the Hulumalhe island.
