Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

Port Trust (KoPT) was planning a to build a dedicated freight corridor between dock area and the Setu, popularly known as the second

Studies have revealed that goods vehicles account for only eight per cent of the vehicles plying on city roads but they are involved in 27 per cent accidents, KoPT deputy chairman S Balaji said.

"The idea is to segregate goods vehicles plying from the dockyard. As per our plans, KoPT will build a flyover which will serve as a freight corridor," Police DC (Traffic) said at a programme on road safety organised by the CII.

The top brass of the Police and senior KoPT officials have held a meeting on building the dedicated freight corridor.
