Gandhinagar: To reduce the travel time, Gujarat government is starting ro-ro ferry service which will be available to public and will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday – October 22.
PM Modi had plans to bring out the ferry service when he was chief minister of Gujarat. A lot of businessmen travel from Bhavnagar to Surat. These people will be benefited once the ferry service kicks off.
The ro-ro ferry service will reduce the time of travel from 8-10 hours to only 30 minutes. The ferry can accommodate 1,000 passengers and can even carry 150 vehicles.
This service will save expenditures on fuel and also reduce the number of road accidents. Once Gogha terminal gets fully operational, state government is planning to connect Mumbai via this ferry service in its next phase.
