PHYSICAL PLAN - Xai-Xai IDP

Promenade Development: P

Segment P4: Between Xai-Xai to Praia do Alho

2.1

Planning Phase

The planning of this segment should be carried out in the third phase, after the coastal road has taken a form of a promenade.

2.2

Land Use

The coastal stretch, beach and foredunes should be kept in almost natural condition with the exception of only two small entertainment points development.

2.3

Access

The pedestrian access should remain along the coastal road which becomes a Promenade. At the mature stage of the Development Plan, a vehicular access should be provided by lateral roads, but only to selected points so as to avoid the transit traffic.

2.4

Roads and Pedestrian Network

Since protection of foredunes should be accorded utmost importance, pedestrian areas should be constructed in a way not to cause further damage to the environment, e.g., elevated boardwalks at selected points.

The access to the T4 and T5 development, including entrances to parking and service areas, should be gained from the backset road, thus enabling the coastal road to take a form of a promenade with traffic limited to public and emergency transport only.

2.5

Development Guidelines

Local building forms (huts) and materials (wood) should be used in limited entertainment points and for the construction of boardwalks.

Relative Locality

The central beach segment fronting T4 and western segment of T5 cell. This segment of the beach is highly exposed to the wave action and, therefore, bathing opportunities are limited.

Topography, Size and Dimension

The beach rock reef is basically submerged and covered with sand. The foredunes are high and well vegetated. Area – 27.2 ha Length – 2,100m Average width – 120m

Land Cover

The specific vegetation cover (pioneer and final succession plants) at the foredunes is dense and generally well preserved.

Existing Access

The coastal road is laid at the back of the foredunes and thus limited destruction occurred mainly along few lateral paths that cross the foredunes towards the beach.

Built Structures

Few tourist huts are built along the coastal road.

Planning Framework

Map 10(b) and 10(c) : Land Use Map

The improvement of the coastal road while in use as vehicular access should be done with on site available materials, e.g., paving with concrete bricks, taking into account development of a promenade as the final design stage.

1. 1.1

Existing Framework

Implementation Phase

Immediate and strict protection of natural features. Limited built up structures in the mature phase of resort Development Plan.
