Mumbai to create dedicated container corridor

Municipal authorities have vowed to tackle congestion emanating from all the boxes heading in and out of India’s top container port. A new 43.9 km dedicated corridor for container traffic will be built in the next two years linking Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) to the hinterland and providing some relief to the traffic that tends to snarl India’s largest city.

The port has formed a Special Purpose Vehicle with the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and the City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra Ltd (CIDCO) to build the corridor.
