Greater Noida: Tappal Bajna, some 7km from the upcoming Jewar international airport, could become one of the region’s largest logistics and warehousing hubs, if Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA) moves ahead with its proposal for the same under its Master Plan Phase-II.
A preliminary report submitted by consultant Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India engaged in preparing the feasibility study and the detailed project report has recommended rail connectivity of the hub — proposed across 465 hectares — with the Delhi-Palwal route. Once ready, it will be a major point of industrial goods offload, officials said. “We have proposed the logistics and warehousing hub in Tappal Bajna Urban Centre under the Master Plan Phase-II. We have appointed Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India for preparing the feasibility study-cum-DPR of the proposed logistics and warehousing hub in the area,” said Monika Rani, additional CEO of YEIDA .
While the inception report has been submitted by the consultant, it has also recommended that the logistics and warehousing hub be well connected via road and rail. The report suggests connecting this hub with the Delhi-Palwal rail road, with 16km of track laid for the purpose.
“There is Chola railway station near Tappal. But specific proposals for rail connectivity shall be made by the consultant with justified recommendations in the draft DPR, which is yet to be submitted,” she said.
While it is proposed that 1,794.4 hectares will be reserved for industries and 1,608.3 hectares for mixed land use, Monika said, “The final location will be recommended by the consultant in the draft DPR.”
