Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency Varanasi will be the country’s first transport hub. Transport services of water, land and sky will met at the same place. If everything is okay then these three services will be started soon.
The exercise of tackling the problem of Varanasi’s demolished traffic jams has accelerated. With smart traffic management, smart surveillance system and smart parking, as well as the preparation of a transport hub under the public transport platform, it has increased.
Under the different transport hubs of its kind in the country, public transportation facility will be available in Road, Rail, Ganga, Ferry service and Ropeway. For this, the Center and the State Government have asked all the departments to submit the plan as soon as possible. Under the Comprehensive Mobility Plan, the reconnaissance venue is set to be built on the Western Ghats near Rajghat bridge.
It takes two hours for people who come in different areas of the city and those who come to the nearby district or Bihar to change themselves to BHU Hospital in many places. If the ferry service starts, it will take half an hour and the journey will be completed in just Rs 15-20. Due to the pressure of vehicles on the city streets, the problem of jam will be substantially exhausted.
The proposed Transport Hub site is connected to Varanasi-Chandauli GT Road, Outer Ring Road Phase-3 and the main route to the city, then the Central Government’s dream project is from Varanasi. Haldia is being developed as a major center of ferry service under Ganga Water Transportation. The work to upgrade the Kashi railway station, which is only a short distance, has already begun. Doppelmayr of Austria, the world’s largest ropeway-maker, has also set the route of Rajghat to start the Ropeway service for public transport. There is also an offer to the Inter Model bus stand.
For the first time in the country as a public transport ropeway will start from Varanasi. Town Planner Manoj Kumar of Development Authority said that the first route fixed by the Austrian company Doppelmayr carried out the survey by reaching the end of the old Kashi from Rajghat to Machodhari, Vishweshwarganj, Madagin, Chowk, Godavali, Sonarpura, eighty, second end, eighty and BHU. Have done Another route is proposed from BHU and Cantt to Maldahiya, Lahurabir and Madagin. Dopelmer has asked to start the system on a route under the Poylet Project. Rope-Way will be cheaper many times than Metro Rail Project. While the cost of construction of one kilometer for the metro is 350 crore, the rope-way and the cable car is only about Rs 50 crore.
For the passenger ship running (ferry service) on the Ganges waves, the work of making the passenger platform between the first model of the Ganga Water Highway, from the first model to the Varanasi terminal, Rajghat has begun. Passenger Jetties are being manufactured on behalf of the Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI), along with the Varanasi terminal, Assi, Lalita and windows ghats. Further, half a dozen other major Ghats will also be linked to this service. Talking with private companies for small passenger ships is going on.
Vishwanath Corridor (Vishwanath Dham), built in 39 thousand square meter area under the expansion of Kashi Vishwanath Temple will become the main center of the ferry service. After the construction of the corridor from Lalita Ghat, there will be direct connection to the temple from there. Then through the ferry service devotees will reach Rajghat or the Western Ghats at one end and Lalima Ghat, directly from Ramnagar on the other end, will reach the temple from there. They will not have to deal with the city’s jam.
