Dealing with the Bombay Traffic has been a constant complaint among people living in the city. People are often found complaining about heavy traffic that causes them to arrive late on various occasions. But are we finally going to have a way out of this problem? Let’s find out about it.
For nearly 30 years, Mumbai is planning to use waterways for transport. It’s a pleasure to know that we will finally have the resources to make Mumbai’s lives easier.
Mumbaikars can finally breathe a sigh of relief as the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT) is looking to start water taxi services from the city’s DCT (domestic cruise terminal) at Princess Dock next month. Apart from water taxis, they are also planning to develop shipbuilding and related activities.
Sanjay Bhatia, Chairman of the Mumbai Port Trust (MbPT), said, “They are trying to launch a water taxi service from the Gateway of India to different parts such as Karanja, JNPT, New Airport, Kanhoji Angre Island, Navi Mumbai, Nerul, Vashi, and Belapur. They have invited tenders to start water taxis. These taxis could go up to Thane if they didn’t need a lot of depth. In 3-4 months, some water taxis will begin,”
Are we going on a cruise, too?
Mumbai Port Trust also wants to encash that Mumbai is one of the most critical cruise hubs in the country. As a result, they have taken several steps to attract cruise lines to Indian waters further and are focusing on developing world-class cruise tourism infrastructure. Whoa! Whoa! Isn’t that mind-blowing news
Mumbai Port is also all set to develop a new Yacht Marina, which an Italian consulting firm will develop. The Chairman confirmed that they would be launching a tender under the PPP for the Marina and handling 300 yachts under the Marina in the next two months.
