Govt clears Rs 110 cr ROPAX jetty project on Dhamra river in Odisha

Centre has approved over 50 crore rupees for developing all-weather ROPAX, Roll-on/Roll-off Passenger Jetty and allied infrastructure connecting Kaninali in Bhadrak district and Talachua in Kendrapara district, Odisha under the Sagarmala initiative. In a tweet, Shipping Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said, 110 crore rupees ROPAX Jetty project will come up on river Dhamra in Odisha. This project will reduce travel time for passengers from 6 hours by road to one hour by waterway. He said, it will facilitate safe movement of passengers and vehicles.

Kaninali in Bhadrak district and Talachua in Kendrapada district, are located on the northern and southern banks of River Dhamra. The people of Talachua and nearby villages largely depend upon Dhamra port for their livelihood, which is approximately four kilometres from Kaninali Ghat. The connectivity will increase the commercial and business activities and uplift the socio-economic status of the surrounding region.
