About Ro Ro Ferry Service, Ghogha – Dahej

History

Gujarat’s Dahej is all set to get India’s first roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) vessel passenger ferry services around April 2017. The Rs 550 crore project being executed by the Gujarat Maritime Board (GMB) is expected to bring down travel time between Saurashtra region in Gujarat with its Southern parts significantly.

At present travelling from Ghogha in Saurashtra to Dahej in South Gujarat takes around 10-12 hours for trucks and buses, and even by cars it is not less than 6-8 hours. Once the Ro-Ro ferry service commences, this time would be dramatically shortened to one and a half hours.

The Ro-Ro ferry service would not only bring down the transportation time in the region, but would also reduce pressure on the existing road and rail networks, and boost tourism. The distance between Ghogha and Dahej by road is around 360 km, while the sea route is just about 32 km.

About 1 cum dredging in Ghogha and 3 cum dredging at Dahej is expected and dredge material is proposed to be filled in low lying area. No cargo will be handled at both the terminals.

Famous for

Gujarat Maritime Board has 16 hectares of land at Ghogha (and 14 hectares of land at Jageshwar-Dahej) over which construction of security gate – check in/checkout control, vehicle checking gate, future marshalling area, paved marshalling area, sewage treatment plant, workshop/engineering, water tank, terminal building, car parking, access trestle, administration building, roofed space(arrival), bus terminal, future extension area, land reclamation, access bund, link span, passenger amenities, pontoon, existing bund, approach trestle will be witnessed over next one year by Essar infrastructure.

Benefits of the Project

Reduction in transportation time and cost

Reduction in fuel consumption

Substantial reduction in road congestion and accident

Reduction in retention period of transport vehicle for loading and unloading

An extension to the road/rail system

Achievement of greater productivity of the transport means

Different manifestation of the transport of commodities

Cutting down the use of road transport infrastructure and costs of compensation for its use.

Lower environment pollution (substantial reduction in CO2 emission in environment)

Lower risk of average and damage of goods during transport

The special Ro-Ro vessels plying between Dahej-Ghogha will have the capacity to ferry 900 passengers and 100 vehicles in one trip.

The total estimated cost of the project, when it was started in January 2012, was Rs 295.80 crore and was aimed at completion in mid of 2013.

The reason the project is lagging behind the scheduled time of completion is cited as delay in clearance given from the centre.
