The Kerala government proposes to develop an integrated multimodal transport system linking roads, railways and sea ports for the movement of cargo and passengers, Ports and Fisheries Minister, K Babu, said today.

“The state government has been taking concerted measures to utilise coastal shipping, which is environment friendly,” he said in his inaugural address at the Maritime Education and Training summit here.

As a first step, government wants to set up commercially viable Inland water transport system to ease congestion on roads, he said, adding the plan was to move 20% of road cargo through waterways by 2020. The port facilities are being revamped by setting up new port terminals and adding coastal infrastructure.
