The procedure by which two logistics hubs can be built along the Delhi-Meerut Expressway has been considered by the U.P. government.
On the outskirts of the city, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has identified property for the construction of two logistics hubs: one in Bhojpur and one in Kaushaliya. This is a component of the Authority’s long-term traffic management plan to stop large trucks from entering the city limits while also facilitating the efficient transportation of commodities and raw materials. Seven cities in the state have lately been chosen by the UP government to become logistics hubs. On the outskirts of the city, the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has located property for the construction of two logistics hubs: one in Bhojpur and one in Kaushaliya. This is a component of the Authority’s long-term traffic management strategy to keep large vehicles out of the city limits while also supporting the efficient flow of raw materials and goods.
This is an example of the mutli-modal logistics hub thought by the government
A committee has been formed at the state and district levels to implement the plan. A similar multi-modal logistics hub was announced along the DME by Union Minister of Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari in December of last year, and for that project, GDA had identified 150 hectares of land in Dasna. The site has been chosen, which is near the village of Dasna and the Eastern Peripheral Expressway in the vicinity of Ghaziabad (EPE). Also nearby are NH-9 and the Delhi-Howrah railway. The main reason for the logistics hubs to be established was told by a GDA Official. “The city’s roads, especially at night, get choked as heavy vehicles ferrying raw materials and goods use Ghaziabad as a transit route. A plan was discussed for many years for creating a logistics hub on the outskirts of the city so that heavy vehicles did not have to enter the city’s limits,” said a GDA official. The GDA has placed emphasis on developing logistics hubs and warehouses under Master Plan 2031.
This establishment of logistic hubs will help to reduce the excess traffic the highway faces
The vision with which the GDA and the U.P Government are working for the establishment of these two logistics hubs shows the need for it. They had been planning it for a long time and it has finally come into existence and it is only a matter of time before we can conclude whether it was the right decision or not.
