Ahmedabad to establish 10 Logistics Parks for a greener, smoother commute

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (Auda) are collaborating to establish approximately 10 logistics parks in the city. To be developed along the SP Ring Road, the logistics parks are aimed to combat pollution and alleviate traffic congestion.

The decision comes in response to findings from a comprehensive survey conducted under AMC’s Clean Air Project, revealing that over 350 trucks flood into the city daily during peak hours around the Jamalpur APMC market area. The influx of trucks not only contributes to traffic gridlock but also exacerbates air pollution levels.

With a vision for a cleaner and more efficient city, the civic body has earmarked provisions in its 2024-25 budget to establish logistics parks on sizable plots strategically located along the SP Ring Road. These parks will cater specifically to heavy commercial vehicles, such as trucks transporting goods into the city.

As part of the plan, AMC and Auda are actively scouting for suitable plots to accommodate these logistics parks. The objective is for larger vehicles to unload their cargo at these designated sites, allowing smaller vehicles to transport the goods within the city. This innovative approach aims to mitigate traffic jams and exert control over air pollution, aligning with the city’s commitment to environmental sustainability.
