Officials say it will cut traffic in cities and connect peripheral areas better.
The Gujarat state government has decided to establish huge transport nagars in all eight municipal corporations to establish connectivity in the peripheral regions of the cities and ease traffic congestion in cities.
These transport nagars will come up in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat, Rajkot, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh and Gandhinagar on Public Private Partnership (PPP) models.
Anticipating growth of major urbanized areas and keeping in view the Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC), the state government has asked the municipal corporations and all urban development authorities to identify land for the purpose.
Vadodara Urban Development Authority (VUDA) has already reserved 78.5 hectares of land for setting up of a transport nagar on PPP model.
“In principle, approval has already been given for Vadodara and Jamnagar cities.The government has ordered a detailed master plan for the transport nagar in Vadodara to be made by a consultant.’’
“Process for identifying suitable land in Ahmedabad, Surat and Rajkot is under way. Once that is done, bidding and other processes will be initiated. These transport nagars will cut down traffic in cities and help organize transport-related activities.”
