Pointing towards the logistic importance of the Tuticorin port and the role it plays in supply of coal for power generation,  the Minister said deepening of the port will make it possible for mainline vessels to carry export containers from the industrial hinterland of the state. This will help avoid transshipment at foreign ports, bringing down the cost of coal transport as also the overall cost of generation of electricity.  He further informed that investment of Rs 3000 crore is being made in this sector.Shri Gadkari  announced that the National Highway linking the port to mainland will be widened to 6 lane road to ease congestion.
