Cargo Talk - - Cargo News -

In­land Waterways Au­thor­ity of In­dia (IWAI) signed a Me­moran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with the State Govern­ment of Orissa, and Port of Paradip and Dhamra for the devel­op­ment and main­te­nance of vi­able stretches of Na­tional Waterways-5. This will in­clude stretches of about 332 kilo­me­tres com­pleted in two phases.

In the first phase, devel­op­ment work on the stretch be­tween Joka­dia and Dhamra-Paradip Port would be­gin to fa­cil­i­tate ship­ping and nav­i­ga­tion of cargo ves­sels. The re­quired in­fra­struc­ture and nav­i­ga­tion aids would en­able the move­ment of about 1500 tonnes of cargo ves­sels.

In the sec­ond phase, the stretch be­tween Talcher and Joka­dia, cov­er­ing about 131 kilo­me­tres, will be de­vel­oped.

The project pro­posal will be de­vel­oped by the IWAI in the next five months, af­ter ob­tain­ing nec­es­sary sanc­tion of the es­ti­mated cost re­quired for the ex­e­cu­tion of the project.
