Sector 23C, right next to the upcoming international airport at Jewar in Greater Noida, has been earmarked for a 700 acre transport hub by the Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority (YEIDA). “The area is right next to the Jewar airport. Those travelling to and from the airport will need a bus terminal, cab facilities and other transport options,” said Arunvir Singh, CEO of YEIDA.
It will also facilitate transport of goods for companies and industries coming up in neighbouring sectors. “We still don’t have a warehousing and logistics hub, which is essential. With the Yamuna Expressway and other highways coming up around the airport, many industries are showing an interest in the Jewar area. They will all need logistics support. We are suggesting changes in the logistics policy so facilities can be introduced,” said Singh.
So far, four connectivity options with Jewar airport have been proposed by RITES, these include road, railway and metro rail networks. Three alternative routes have also been suggested to connect the Jewar airport with the Indira Gandhi International Airport in Delhi.
The Authority will develop sectors 21 and 28 as electronic clusters. The two sectors are separated by Sector 29, where an ODOP (one district one product) cluster is coming up. Sector 28 is relatively smaller, with 750 acres while Sector 21 has 1,400 acres. Officials said both sectors may be open for allotment in February after a meet with the State Industrial Development Corporation.
