DHOLERA is situated in Ahmedabad district in the Gulf of Khambhat
Identified as a Greenfield port, it will be developed along with private sector participation by Dholera Port Limited (promoted by J K Group and Adani Group).
Dholera is in proximity with the coastal line. It is covered by water faces on three sides, namely, on the east face by Gulf of Khambhat, on the north side by Bavaliari creek and on southern side by Sonaria creek.
Proximity to Ahmedabad has provided Dholera a strong locational advantage with a vibrant manufacturing base and investment scenario.
The project is spread over an area of 35,000 hectares. The processing area which is proposed is 14,000 hectares and rest is non- processing zone.
Dholera port is primarily involved into handling general cargo, dry bulk, containers, ship breaking and chemical handling facilities.
Location: Dholera Special Investment Region
Strategically located, the Ahmedabad-Dholera industrial region lies within 100 km from the Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) in Southern Gujarat.
National Highway 8 connects the Dholera Special Investment Region with Ahmedabad, Bhavnagar and Mumbai. Dholera itself has good connectivity with National Highway (NH) 8 (Anand) and 8A (Bagodra), augmenting Bagodra -Bhavnagar, Bagodra- Surendranagar- Radhanpur links.
As a part of Golden Quadrilateral, the 500 km Mumbai- Ahmedabad- Vadodara Express way connects the region.
In order to make the region more assessable, an airport and a port are proposed in this region.
The port site is proposed to be connected by road with Ahmedabad – Bhavnagar highway at a distance of about 11 kilometres. Almost 2,057 hectares of Government land was allocated for the development of port.
