Hyderabad: Eight logistics parks will be developed along Outer Ring Road (ORR) as part of the plans to make Hyderabad a logistics hub for India, said K T Rama Rao, Telangana's Industry Minister here on Friday. "Logistics is one of the 14 thrust areas identified in the State's industrial policy," he added.
KTR who inaugurated a logistics park developed by Ancon Group in partnership with Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) at Mangalapally in Ranga Reddy district on the outskirts of Hyderabad, said the park was the first-of-its-kind integrated logistics park developed in Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode. He also announced that the second logistics park will be inaugurated by December or January 2020 at Batasingaram.
Spread over 22 acres, the Ancon logistics park has 2.5 lakh square feet of grade A warehouse space. It has facilities such as parking for 250 trucks, warehousing, automobile service centres, fuel stations, provision for cold storage, a primary health centre, dormitories and restaurants. The logistics park is already providing direct employment to 1,000 people and indirect employment to 2,000 people, KTR said.
"Eight more logistics parks will come up along 162-km long ORR, which has 19 interjunctions and these parks would facilitate industrialisation in all four directions around the city and through decongestion ensure there is not much pressure on the city infrastructure," he said and added, "I hope that this would help overcome problems associated with urbanisation."
KTR said: "In support of these logistic parks, the government is planning to develop three inter-state bus terminals on the city outskirts - one in south and two in north, as also two major railway terminals were proposed at Cherlapally and Nagulapalle".
