The inauguration of India’s first river terminal in Guwahati, Assam, under Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s leadership marks a significant milestone in the country’s transport sector. Scheduled for May 13, 2022, the Guwahati Gateway Ghat (GGG), funded by the World Bank, aims to enhance connectivity and boost economic growth in the region by utilizing the Brahmaputra River for sustainable development.

Designed by India’s Ports & Waterways teams, the GGG offers a blend of functionality and comfort with amenities like cafes, a canteen, and access ramps, redefining the travel experience for passengers navigating the Brahmaputra. Situated strategically on the river’s southern bank, Guwahati serves as a major transport hub and caters to passengers from the city and nearby river access points called ‘Ghats’.

The inauguration of the GGG heralds a new era of connectivity and accessibility in Assam, promising safe and convenient river transportation year-round. With the terminal poised to enhance regional development, the project represents a step towards a more connected future for the people of Assam, sparking anticipation and excitement for the transformative initiative.
