TranAsia Projects

TransAsia's focus is on providing mobility for people and goods, through land, water and air. This is based on the fact that, across the globe, four trillion dollars would be needed over the next decade to cater to the transportation demands of a rapidly shrinking globe. Connectivity enhancement, through better transportation infrastructure, would lead to major benefits including enhanced trade and commerce, as well as huge savings of fuel and time, besides a better environment.

TransAsia's flagship landmark project is the 6.1 kms long six-lane Second Vivekananda Bridge (SVB) Tollway on NH-2 - including the 880-m long Nivedita Bridge across the River Hooghly near Kolkata, India. TransAsia, and its Founders, have been associated with this project since its initial planning and feasibility stages including the alignment, bidding, project development, land acquisition, rehabilitation & relocation, environmental approvals, financing, design & construction, and operations & maintenance. SVB Tollway is India's largest BOT bridge with the largest Foreign Direct Investment in Eastern India in the transport sector. Total project cost, all inclusive, exceeds Rs. 10,000 million (US$ 200 million).

Some of the salient attributes of the SVB Tollway are:
  • Major connectivity between NH-2 & NH-6 in the west with NH-34 & NH-35 in the east.
  • Fast & efficient 6-kms, 6 -lane link between twin cities of Kolkata and Howrah across the River Hooghly.
  • Seamless drive from Kolkata Airport to Howrah, Dankuni, Singur, Burdwan & Durgapur on the 8-kms, 4-lane Belghoria Expressway and across the SVB Tollway.
  • World's first single-plane multi-span extradosed cable stayed bridge built in record time of 39 months.
  • National icon which has won an International Award for Excellence in 2007 from the American Segmental Bridge Institute (ASBI).
