Udupi: Security has been thightened at the sea walkway near the tourist jetty at Malpe here after miscreants damaged a granite bench, of about 35 feet, installed for people to sit and enjoy the sea and its surroundings.

The construction of a compound wall of the area where the tourist jetty and sea walkway is located at has reached 60% completion and is expected to be completed within a month. A gate will be installed at the entrance of the compound and a gate will also be installed at the entrance of the walkway on the western side and another gate will be installed at the east to prevent people from getting near the sea to take selfies, informed Mr.Shetty.

There is a granite seat on either side of the walkway for people to sit and enjoy the beautiful sight the surrounds them. The entire Malpe beach can be seen from the walkway and to illuminate the entire walkway during the evening, as many as 30 iron cast lamp poles have been fixed.
