Prime Minister Narendra Modi will on Sunday launch India’s first roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) ferry services in Gujarat. PM Modi had announced this himself while addressing a huge gathering on October 16. Developed at a cost of around Rs 615-crore, the project has been executed by Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB). The ferry services will dramatically reduce travel time between Saurashtra region in Gujarat with the southern parts of the state. On Friday, PM Modi shared a video providing a glimpse into what he calls his “dream project.”
The Ro-Ro services between Ghogha in Bhavnagar district and Dahej in Bharuchwill will facilitate vehicular and passenger ferry services across the Gulf of Cambay. It will not only reduce the travel time between the two regions, Ro-Ro ferry services will also allow vehicles with passengers aboard.
