– The project’s cost of 1st phase of RORO service is around Rs 615 crore.

– RORO means ‘roll-on, roll-off (ro-ro)’

– It is a ferry service between Ghogha in Bhavnagar district and Dahej in Bharuch in the Gulf of Cambay.

– The ferry service will reduce the distance between the two towns from 310 kilometres by road to 30 kilometres

– PM Modi addressed a gathering in Ghogha and will undertake a journey to Dahej from Ghogha on the ferry.

– From Dahej, he will leave for Vadodara, where he is scheduled to inaugurate and lay the foundation stones for projects worth over Rs 1,140 crore.

– The first phase of the service to be inaugurated by PM Modi on Sunday is meant for passengers.

– In the second phase, which would be ready in two months, cars can also be carried between the two towns.

– It is a complex project which involves complicated marine structure of the Gulf of Cambay, on which it is built.

– The service reduces the distance between the two towns from 310 kilometres by road to 30 kilometres which can be covered in one hour

– Modi had laid the foundation stone for the project in January 2012, when he was the chief minister of Gujarat.
