THOLE PRODUCE YARD (TPX)

 

NAME THOLE PRODUCE YARD (TPX)
TOTAL COST OF THE PROJECT Rs 1 Billion
DATE OF COMPLETION  Project is on Hold Up

Port of Karachi is facing severe constraints in respect of areas available within the bonded area of the Port for storage and cargo handling. Currently it faces shortage of 6 Ha, will enhance to 36 Ha by 2020-21 and 86 Ha by 2040-41 in 30 years time. Handling of containers, which traffic is well established and set to rise to 10% per annum requires large backup areas to give optimum throughput. Container Terminals on the East and West Wharves are persistently running short of space. Container Operations in restricted space leads to slow output, hence an extra cost.

The TPX yard represents an important strategic opportunity to develop a central inter-modal Yard for all port traffic, and at the same time, provide off-dock storage for containers, substantially performing as an extension of the Port itself and therefore reducing the pressure on storage space within the Port.

TPX presents an opportunity to defuse the intensity of the large road traffic to and from the Port. The scheme of arrangement proposed for the TPX area foresees running of shuttle trains between TPX and East and West Wharves. This will substantially shift the road traffic from the Port gates to shuttle container trains. Development of TPX as a specialized centre of container cargo handling, and as a unit integrated with the port; will assists the port in achieving higher throughput and a greater share of the national trade for Karachi Port Trust.

To conduct the detail planning & design of the proposed TPX area as required for handling of general & containerized on a proper cargo staking area. Hence KPT has been engaged a renowned consulting firm M/s Engineering Associates to develop / prepare the planning & design report at the cost of Rs 31,483,500/= including supervision services of 15  months in stage -II. The total work assignment is comprised of 21 months as per TOR.

The planning & design assignment (Stage-1) has commenced since May 2011. The project is now hold up due to some reasons.
