Brief Description of the Ongoing Projects under ADP 2009-2010

The Chittagong Port being the principal seaport of Bangladesh handles about 92% of maritime trade of Bangladesh. With the economic growth of the country and government response towards globalization and trade liberalization, cargo handling at Chittagong port has been rising sharply. Because of the steady growth in the volume of container arriving at the port, the port authority has been implementing various development programs in phases.

Implementation positions of the ongoing projects included in ADP 2009-2010 are described below:

i) Chittagong port trade facilitation project (ADB funded).

The objective of the project is to increase the capacity of the container terminals in Chittagong Port and enable it to be at par with international port security and environmental standards. In the medium term, the project will lead to reduction in service time; lower shipping and port charges, which will foster more international trade. The project is funded by ADB and comprises three main components: i) CPA Component, ii) CHC (Customs House of Chittagong) Component and RHD (Roads and Highway Department) Component. CPA Component comprises the following:

  1. Reconstruction and up gradation of internal roads and bridge between CCT and the general cargo berths and improvement of two access points (gates) to expedite intra-port traffic flow.
  2. Construction of 900m port-service road and a bridge to provide direct access from the yard to port park.
  3. Installation of a computerized Container Terminal Management System(CTMS) including Digital Global Positioning System(DGPS) and up gradation of the existing management information system.
  4. Improvement of the port environment and environmental capacity of CPA by Installing facilities for receiving and separating oil waste from ships and construction of monitoring office/laboratory etc.

All the components of the project are being executed under 05(five) packages (CPA-1, CPA-2, CPA-3 & CPA-5) complying ADB’s guidelines. Out of five packages two packages namely civil work for waste collection and disposal facility (CPA-3) and port service road 1st phase (CPA-5) have already been completed. Remaining three packages such as CTMS and MIS (CPA-1), Oily Waste collection and disposal Vessel (CPA-2) and reconstruction/up gradation of internal road and Canal Bridge between the CCT and GCB area and Gate Control equipment (CPA-4) are in progress.

ii. Construction of Back up Facilities behind Berth # 4 & 5 of New Mooring container terminal

The main objective of the project is to ensure efficient and full-fledged operation of the newly built New Mooring Container Terminal (NCT). The DPP of the project with an estimated cost of Tk.114.48 crore was approved by Govt. on 10 November 2008. The consultant for the project has been appointed and Prequalification (PQ) of the contractors for civil construction has been completed. Tenders will be invited shortly from the short-listed contractors.

iii) Construction of Inland Container Terminal (ICT) at Pangaon:

The main objective of the project is to construct a Container River Terminal at Pangaon, Dhaka for handling containers to be transported by inland waterways from and to the maritime ports of Chittagong and Mongla. The second Revised DPP of the project is under process for Govt. approval at an estimated cost of Tk. 177.57 crores. Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA) with Chittagong Port Authority (CPA) is implementing the Project in joint venture. The entire investment cost will be borne by CPA. To this direction an MOU has been signed between CPA and BIWTA. The implementation work of the project is in progress and expected to be completed by June 2010.
