Kaladan Multi-modal Transit Transport Project.

Kaladan Multi-modal Transit Transport Project.

♢ The project will connect the Kolkata seaport to Sittwe deep sea-port in Myanmar by sea, then from Sittwe to Paletwa (in Myanmar) through Kaladan river via boat route then from Paletwa to Mizoram via roadways.

## Utility

The N-E states are landlocked & the only route to N-E states in India is via Siliguri corridor (also known as Chicken’s neck) which is very narrow. The main aim of the project is to provide better connectivity & faster transportation of goods to N-E states from Kolkata via Myanmar.

## Why multi-modal?

It is a multi-modal transport (or combined transport) project i.e. it involves sea route, boat route & road transport. 

Multi-modal transport = involves more than two means of transportation.

♡ Ministry of External Affairs, MEA is the nodal agency for the project.

With Great Love,
