A project aimed at promoting cargo transportation by sea will be launched shortly with the principal objective of easing traffic congestion on roads, Fisheries Minister K. Babu has said.

Inaugurating dredging work at the Beypore port here on Saturday, the Minister pointed out that besides reducing the volume of road traffic, development of sea transport facilities would reduce environmental pollution in a big way. The project would help reduce road traffic by 20 per cent.
