Sector Expert Consultation On Transport

A consultation for the Transport sector was organized in partnership with the Vizag Chamber of Commerce on 10th August 2017 at Vishakhapatnam.


Some of the major challenges that the state of Andhra faces includes bottlenecks and lack of high quality connectivity roads to industrial hubs and ports constraining its industrial growth, resource constraints for maintenance and huge capacity upgrading requirements, connectivity and capacity augmentation requirements. Further a high growth in size and volume of traffic along with an absence of multi-modal logistics hub also poses a problem. In Andhra, only 80% of households connected to a road with some remote areas still having only single track rail.

The discussions during the consultation lead to the suggested interventions listed below.
