Vadodara’s First Geo-Mapping: National Highway, Freight Corridor, Bullet Train

  • Consolidating project information and its corresponding latitude and longitude data on a single map will facilitate seamless coordination for future disaster response efforts.
  • The formation of a committee has been initiated to address the issue of waterlogging during the monsoon season.

In a first for Gujarat, Vadodara is embarking on a Geo-mapping project that will cover National Highways, the Dedicated Freight Corridor, and the Bullet Train project. This initiative aims to consolidate project information, complete with latitude and longitude data, into a single map. This integrated approach will facilitate seamless coordination, especially in future disaster management scenarios. Collector Atul Gore has issued instructions for the implementation of this geo-mapping endeavor.

It’s worth noting that Vadodara district has established a special committee to find long-term solutions to issues arising from monsoon-related rainwater inundation. Chaired by Collector Atul Gor, this committee also includes officials from relevant government offices. The inaugural meeting of this committee was held at the collector’s office today, marking an important step in addressing monsoon-related challenges.

During the inaugural meeting of the committee, discussions were held with officials from various sectors, including Railways, Freight Corridors, High-Speed Rail Corridors, Express Highways, and the National Highways Authority. The Collector issued instructions for these officials to personally inspect areas prone to waterlogging and propose solutions based on their past experiences. Following joint site visits involving both provincial and project officials, the committee has been tasked with outlining short-term and long-term plans to address waterlogging issues in areas prone to flooding by the end of September. This comprehensive report will be submitted to the revenue department for further action.

Planning to Prevent Rainwater Filling in Natural Channels After Cleaning Completion

During monsoons or storms, residential areas often experience house flooding and road accidents. One of the root causes of this issue is the blockage of natural rainwater drainage channels. When these natural channels become obstructed or clogged, rainwater tends to overflow, causing problems. To address these challenges effectively, both short-term and long-term planning is essential. Consequently, committees have been established at both the state and district levels. The resolution outlining these matters has been issued by Revenue Department Additional Chief Secretary M.K. Das.
