Mott MacDonald to conduct feasibility study for Tamil Nadu Industrial Corridor of Excellence

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by the Government of Tamil Nadu* to undertake a feasibility study for the proposed Chennai – Bangalore Industrial Corridor of Excellence (ICE) in the Southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

Mott MacDonald will provide a Corridor Development Plan for the 320 km by 13 000 km2 region linking Chennai, Sriperumbudur, Ranipet and Hosur. The corridor will include special economic zones, industrial and IT parks, universities, and social infrastructure such as housing, health-care and schools.

The Government of Tamil Nadu has initiated the ICE scheme as part of its industrial policy, which is being implemented to encourage globally competitive infrastructure and promote inclusive, sustainable industrial development in the state.

Ramesh Kumar, Mott MacDonald’s project director said, “We’re delighted to be awarded this important contract, which will help address the need for an integrated approach to infrastructure development in Tamil Nadu to meet the demands of India’s growing economy. Mott MacDonald is proud to be involved in the formative stages of such a significant and prestigious project.”

The ICE will utilise and enhance the connectivity between the region’s existing transport networks, including the two international airports, national highways and ports of Chennai and Bangalore, two of Southern India’s major cities. In addition, the corridor will develop the cities’ existing industrial bases, raising the profile of Bangalore as a hub for information technology, and Chennai as a centre for automobile, manufacturing and electronics expertise.

The Corridor Development Plan will be prepared in two phases over a period of ten months. The first phase concerns the regions connecting Chennai, Sriperumbudur, Ranipet, and the second, the regions of Ranipet, Hosur and Bangalore.

As part of the study, Mott MacDonald will forecast industrial growth in the region, identify infrastructure requirements and make recommendations for sustainable land use and appropriate investment mechanisms.
