India: Construction of Mumbai Port Terminal Faces Delay

Construction of Mumbai Port Terminal Faces Delay

The government admitted to delays in the development of an Mumbai Port offshore container terminal due to difficulties with several contractors and the port authority.

“There is some delay in the construction of an Offshore Container Terminal at the Mumbai Port due to a delay by the Build, Operate and Transfer operator, dredging contractor and Mumbai Port Trust,” said Minister of State for Shipping Mukul Roy.

Roy also said that the date of commissioning of the berth was supposed to be December 2, 2010, which has now been postponed to December, 2012.

The Mumbai Port Trust has appointed an independent engineer for approval of designs, quality control and monitoring progress of the BOT operator,” he added.
