CIDCO VC-MD visits Nerul passenger water terminal
Bombay: Dr Sanjay Mukherjee, VC and MD, CIDCO, visited the Nerul passenger water terminal on Friday. He reviewed the progress of the project and discussed with the officials concerned the implementation of the project and the difficulties encountered.
“The Nerul passenger water terminal under development as part of the Eastern Waterfront project is in the final phase of completion, and passenger boat and catamaran services will soon be launched from here. This will reduce stress on the roads and rail services and the citizens of Navi Mumbai will have an alternative mode of travel to South Mumbai, ”said Dr Mukherjee.
The state government has appointed the Maharashtra Maritime Board for the planning and development of internal river transport on the east coast of Mumbai as part of the central government river transport development policy. As a result, infrastructure developments for water transport are being undertaken at Bhaucha Dhakka in Mumbai, Nerul in Navi Mumbai and Mandva in Alibaug by Mumbai Port Trust, CIDCO and Maharashtra Maritime Board, respectively. Thus, CIDCO is developing the water transport terminal in Nerul.
The water transport terminal is located east of the NRI complex, west of the Nerul-Uran railway route and north of Palm Beach Road, due to which it has acquired smooth connectivity. The works of the water transport terminal are in the final phase and should be completed very soon and the operation of the fast boats / catamarans will then be taken over by the Maharashtra Maritime Board.
