<p>The discussion covers the three greenfield projects of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the Ministry of Railways, which have a combined project cost of around Rs 9,600 crore.</p>
<p>The new planned BG line between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh was considered by the panel. The objective of the MoR project is to improve multimodal connectivity, boost freight and passenger train capacity, and expedite rail connection between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.</p>
<p>The initiative will also lessen traffic congestion at busy intersections, boost tourism, and create jobs. According to a statement from the government, the Area Development Approach has been included into project design for improving last-mile connectivity, appropriately accounting for synergies with Andhra Pradesh’s ports.</p>
<p>The suggested building of a New Region Ring Road (RRR) in Odisha was another topic of discussion among the NPG members.</p>
<p>The goal of this MoRTH project is to facilitate freight traffic between Chennai and Kolkata. Its goal is to provide multimodal connection between social and logistical nodes, as well as economic nodes including industrial parks, mining and mineral zones, product sheds, and economic corridors. It avoids traffic jams in the cities and improves logistics efficiency by cutting travel time by 37.5% by eschewing key towns in Odisha.</p>
<p>Proposals to four-lane NH-727 in Uttar Pradesh were one of the meeting’s major projects. When the project is finished, there will be better access to the Buddhist Circuit Route, two social hubs, three industrial parks, four economic hubs, including textile and seafood clusters, and eleven logistical hubs, such as Amrit Bharat Railway Stations and Airports.</p>
<p>This is anticipated to raise economic activity, commerce, and investments by enhancing road connection to economic hubs, industrial zones, agricultural areas, industrial parks, and other locations, as well as by promoting cross-border trade and socioeconomic development. In order to meet the growing demand for travel and traffic, it is also expected that the project’s success will encourage the expansion of ancillary infrastructure, such as gas stations, rest areas, and warehouses, as well as opportunities for new services like roadside amenities and rest areas.</p>
<p>It was also highlighted how important rail infrastructure is to supporting the expansion of the logistics business, which is expected to reach 8464 million metric tons by 2031, and to support the growth of the Indian economy to Rs 5 trillion. Indian Railways has suggested raising the rail modal share to 35% by 2031 in order to fulfill the logistical need for freight transportation resulting from the expansion of the Indian economy.</p>
<p>Sumita Dawra, Special Secretary, Logistics, Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), presided over the meeting.</p>
