Yes thats one of the main side benefits. A 6 lane highway and a railway line.

This project is like the stuff of dreams. If ever completed this will be a modern engineering marvel.

Ok!

There will be environmental costs; however, benefits to Kathiwad especially in transporting the run-off's of Mahi and Narmada as well as improving transportation links will be priceless!

Not to mention a ton of reclaimed land around Dholera and Khambat!

If built, it will create the world's largest artificial reservoir so definitely the water woes of Saurashtra will be solved to a great extent.

This project was the reason the Dholera port project was cancelled. An artificial reservoir will also mean a great and stable coastline to build and sustain the city of Dholera.

And the dam, though 30 kms long, will not be too deep. As far as I can tell from basic Google Earth elevation tool the depth along the proposed alignment of the dam ranges between 5 to 12 meters. That's not too deep.

Govind Rubber Ltd (GRL), a BSE-listed company, plans to set up a new tyre manufacturing facility at Dahej in Gujarat with an investment of Rs 750 crore.

The acquisition was made through its subsidiary GRL Tires. GRL is further expanding into manufacturing of two & three-wheeler tyres at the current location in Ludhiana. The company has also entered into a joint venture agreement with a South Korean company GK Co to set up a manufacturing plant for specialised rubber. GRL aims to sell its products in Korea, Indonesia, Vietnam, China and India. It envisages a turnover of Rs 150 crore in two years’ time from this project, Mr Poddar said.

South Korea to Build Sea Wall in India


The Korea Rural Community Corporation is expected to sign a design service contract with the Government of Gujarat in India next month.

The contract worth 40 billion won is to build a sea wall for the Kalpasar Project in order to deal with the chronic shortage of water in the hinterlands of Mumbai. The breakwater construction alone is estimated to cost 12 trillion won and the size of the project can be expanded to US$20 billion when the transportation infrastructure, power plants and the like to be housed in the reclaimed land are taken into account.

The sea wall is to have a length of 30 kilometers, slightly shorter than the world’s longest Saemangeum Seawall in Korea. Still, the freshwater lake to be surrounded by the sea wall is expected to have a storage capacity of 10 billion tons, about 28 times that of the Saemangeum Seawall. The Government of Gujarat is planning to utilize the freshwater lake for potable, agricultural and industrial water supply while turning the region into an industrial complex. 12-lane roads and solar and wind power plants are scheduled to be built there.

“At present, only the Netherlands and South Korea have any experience of large-scale sea wall construction, and thus a lot of opportunities will be given to South Korean enterprises,” an executive at the corporation mentioned, continuing, “They need to form consortiums by section as the scale of the project is huge.” He added, “The corporation is planning to build similar sea walls in Indonesia, Myanmar, etc.”

It is said that the contract has to do with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Saemangeum Seawall back in 2007, when he looked around the sea wall in South Korea as the Governor of Gujarat and was impressed to the point of pondering upon a similar one in India. At that time, however, he failed to realize his thoughts due to the lack of financial resources. Last year, he visited South Korea again and discussed his plan with South Korean President Park Geun-hye.
