 10 Logistics Parks Planned on SP Road

Ahmedabad, India: In a bid to curb traffic congestion and air pollution, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is collaborating with the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (Auda) to establish 10 logistics parks along the SP Ring Road. This ambitious project aims to divert heavy commercial vehicles, particularly trucks, away from the city center, easing traffic flow and improving air quality.

The initiative stems from a concerning finding during AMC’s Clean Air Project survey. The survey revealed that over 350 trucks enter the city during peak hours, primarily concentrated in the Jamalpur APMC market area. These vehicles contribute significantly to traffic jams and exacerbate air pollution.

Responding to this challenge, the 2024-25 budget allocates funds for establishing logistics parks on strategically located plots along the SP Ring Road. These parks will serve as designated hubs for large commercial vehicles, allowing them to unload their goods before smaller vehicles distribute them within the city, minimizing traffic congestion within city limits.

“The study identified heavy commercial vehicles as a major contributor to traffic snarls and air pollution, particularly in areas like Jamalpur APMC market and Gita Mandir ST stand,” revealed sources familiar with the project.

This initiative builds upon Ahmedabad’s 2014 development plan, which envisioned relocating the Gita Mandir ST stand to the city’s outskirts and constructing larger bus stands at entry points. While the Gujarat State Road Transport Corporation (GSRTC) implemented some elements of the plan, including renovating the existing stand and adding e-buses, the issue of traffic congestion persisted.

Similarly, plans to relocate the APMC market and other major vegetable markets outside the city have remained stagnant for the past decade.
