State govt mulls Mangaluru-Goa inter-state waterway for tourism

 

With all 11 inland national waterways (NWs) identified by India’s Inland Waterways Authority (IWA) not taking off, the government of Karnataka has embarked on the development of an ambitious inter-state waterway between Mangaluru and Panaji in Goa, to promote tourism, and for affordable passenger and freight transportation.

Though techno-economic feasibility studies have been initiated for the 11 NWs in Karnataka, the state government has initiated the preparation of a detailed feasibility report (DFR) for the development of an inter-state waterway between Mangaluru and Panaji.

Three firms had expressed interest in the request for proposal from the Karnataka government, floated by the ports & inland water transport department, directorate of ports and inland water transport. Kalinath Advisors Pvt Ltd have been selected as consultants for the project.

 

There are seven critical river systems in Karnataka, with a lot of tributaries, but not much progress has been seen in the development of inland waterways for transport, tourism or cargo movement.

 

The chamber has said the inland water connection of Nethravathi River from Thumbe, that connects Maravoor Bridge via Old Port, and the Mangaluru International Airport, will catalyse economic development along the riverbank.
