PANAJI: The state government may pitch for metro rail in Goa to connect north and south Goa under the state’s mobility plan. The exercise is being undertaken as part of NITI Aayog’s proposal for the transportation sector, carried out with state governments to attain electric mobility and wider renewable energy use.
senior official said that while the two rivers — Mandovi and Zuari — are hurdles, a seamless metro line can still be a possibility. He also said that the government could take a relook at the failed skybus project. Konkan railway corporation (KRC) scrapped its over-Rs 100 crore project after it figured out that it would not be financially viable.
“The idea will be put before chief minister Manohar Parrikar,” the officer said, adding that the draft is being finalised by the department of transport.
The official said that the government is looking at a multi-model connectivity under the mobility plan. Unless there is a complete North-South connect — from Mopa to Karwar — without a break, the metro plan won’t work, he said. “It would be ridiculous to expect people to board a metro that stops at Cortalim or Panaji, and compel them to change their mode of transport for their onward journey.”
The officer, however, admitted that Goa is yet to make any headway in using energy-efficient modes of transport when some other states have been experimenting with battery-operated or electric vehicles and have made much progress. “Goa still has a long way to go,” he said.
All states have been asked to submit a detailed mobility plan, which will be presented at the global mobility summit in New Delhi on September 7-8, which will be inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi. Goa is expected to submit its final draft next week.
