The work on development of two inland waterways in Goa will begin from October this year, Union Minister Nitin Gadkari said here today.
"The Union government will start work on two waterways – Mandovi and Zuari rivers – after the monsoons. The work will start from October," Gadkari said.
The Union minister for shipping said dredging work for the waterways has already been undertaken at an estimated cost of Rs 115 crore.
The ministry has also drawn up a detailed project report for terminals along the inland waterways at various points, including Betim, Brittona, Aldona, Corjuvem, Pomburpa, Durbhat, Old Goa, Panaji, Chorao and Ribander, he said.
"The approximate cost of construction of jetties and passenger terminals is Rs 100 crore," Gadkari said, adding that ferry services would be introduced between Aldona to Panaji, Cortalim to Durbhat and Panaji to Vasco
