Indian port expansion programme gathers speed

Post by Cameron Davidson on 22nd February 2012 in Shipping

India's shipping ministry has unveiled details of no fewer than 22 new projects on which it intends to start work this year, worth a huge 16 trillion rupees (£206million).

Among the biggest of the projects on which work is currently under way are the construction of road links to the port of Ennore, about 15 miles north of Chennai, and at Chennai itself, where the country's roadways minister has recently undertaken talks aimed at speeding up similar work under way there.

The improvements are seen as particularly important to Chennai after it was recently ordered by the Madras high court to stop receiving consignments of coal and iron ore due to the pollution which resulted.

The port has been successful in changing its cargo mix, having seen container traffic rise by nearly a quarter so far this year, India's shipping minister, G K Vasan told the country's Press Trust news agency.
