The Gujarat State Road Development Corporation
Limited (GSRDC) is developing an access controlled expressway
Between Ahmedabad & DSIR to Serve as a Central Spine Road for D-SIR. he proposed road would serve as central spine for Ahmedabad-Dholera SIR. It is decided that initially the road will be four lane with six lane structure. It could be access controlled.
The road is supposed to connect the Ahmedabad city on one hand and Dholera and Bhavnagar ports on the other side. It is envisaged that the new industry cluster to be developed along the spine would considerably benefit with central linkage. It will also act as catalyst to other developments in the region in general and that of SIR in particular. This is also a part of master plan submitted to central govt. for DMIC road connectivity. This is approved by the central govt.
In Metro rail the distance between Gandhinagar-Ahmedabad-Dholera is to be covered in two trenches from Gandhinagar to Ahmedabad and from Ahmedabad to Dholera. It is about 100 kms and is proposed as elevated metro. This will provide faster movement and even otherwise important for new international air port. The project is having a longer gestation period and requires to be taken up quickly. The metro is also approved under DMIC master plan by the central govt.
In one of the meetings with secretary DIPP, during his visit to Gandhinagar it was thought of high speed rail corridor on this route. It is related to pre- feasibility study being carried out by the ministry of railways for Pune-Mumbai-Ahmedbad high speed rail corridor. The govt. of Gujarat has requested the MoR to check up the possibility to extend it upto Dholera via GIFT near Gandhinagar.
In the meantime the study work has been assigned to IL&FS by GIDB for Metro rail. In fact on 29th August 2008, GIDB has re-appointed IL&FS Infrastructure development Corporation for undertaking project advisory services for the Ahmedabad Metro project with the scope of services leading to selection of concessionaire. Again, on 1st September 2008, GIDB also appointed Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for consultancy services for preparing the Detailed Project Report for the Ahmedabad Metro Extension from Gandhinagar to GIFT city.
