The Prime Minister’s dream project of Gogha- Dahej Ro-Pax Ferry service is all ready to start under the Sagarmala programme of the Ministry of Shipping. In a successful trial run conducted recently, 12 loaded trucks were transported by the Ro- Pax ferry from Dahej to Gogha across the Gulf of Cambay, via the sea route. The land route between the two places involves a 294 km or 8 hour drive. The Ro-Pax service reduces this distance to just 31 km through the sea route by crossing the Gulf in Cambay in 17 Nautical Miles. The travel time gets reduced to just 1.5 hours. The fully operational Ro Pax service with carrying capacity of 100 vehicles and 500 passengers will be opened on 27 October 2018.
