Dadri to have world-class multi-modal logistics hub

Tuesday, 09 July 2024 | PNS | Lucknow

The Uttar Pradesh government is investing Rs 7,064 crore on developing a multi-modal logistics hub (MMLH) in Dadri, Greater Noida, as part of its commitment to achieving the goal of a 1-trillion-dollar economy.

This logistics hub will be spread over an area of 823 acres, with 455 acres designated as the core development area.

Meanwhile, developments are underway for commercial and administrative facilities across 17.5 acres, alongside rail yard and other projects covering 350 acres.

In order to expedite these initiatives and ensure comprehensive development, a detailed action plan has been meticulously crafted by the government.

The action plan, aligned with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s vision, is set to transform the Dadri multi-modal logistics hub into a world-class freight handling facility. It will work like a dry port where fast transit of goods and raw materials will be ensured. This ambitious project is slated to become India’s largest logistics hub.

It is worth mentioning that the multi-modal logistics hub of Dadri, located on the eastern and western dedicated freight corridors of the country, will serve as a central hub for services such as container handling, warehousing, cold storage, processing, de-stuffing, stuffing and value-added packing.

Offering seamless rail connectivity, it will feature essential amenities including rail platforms, customs clearance, cargo segregation, truck parking areas, and extensive green spaces

The development of the MMLH in Dadri is progressing under the public-private partnership (PPP) mode, overseen by the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority and the National Industrial Corridor Development and Implementation Trust (NICDIT) guidelines.

The Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority has prepared the master detailed project report for constructing the approach track and Rail Over Rail (ROR) bridge extending from new Dadri station to the MMLH boundary.

Simultaneously, the Dedicated Freight Corridor Corporation of India (DFCCIL) has sanctioned the detailed project report (DPR) for the construction of railway tracks and terminal stations within the MMLH. Additionally, the tender documentation for land acquisition and signalling processes for the approach track has been finalised.

Concurrently, the processes of trunk infrastructure boundary, roads, canals, bridges, utility shifting and water and power supply are also being completed through the implementation of various phases.
