Chennai Port Trust makes changes to outer harbour project

In a bid to make two of its major infrastructure projects attractive, the Chennai Port Trust (ChPT) has altered some of the key parameters and has forwarded the proposals to the Shipping Ministry. The alteration has been proposed as ChPT could not find a partner on this front for the last one year, even as its competitors in the East Coast made substantial progress. On Thursday, the Board of Trustees of ChPT passed resolutions pertaining to the ` 5,100-crore outer harbour project, and converting the existing Jawahar Dock into a multi-cargo terminal at an investment of ` 460 crore.
