River Ganga is Gigantic it’s minimum width is 1600 metres and maximum 8000 metre Suez Canal is only 205 metres wide river Ganga can accommodate all big ships from Varanasi to Haldia its huge enough to accommodate all ships
Not all rivers are as huge as Ganga we are extremely lucky to have this huge river going deep inside our territory (1685 km ) we will see new planned townships , beautiful beaches , cruise ships , industrial clusters , shipbuilding , container manufacturing and transportation of freight alongside this river in few years it’s already happening but after 2023 it will happen at bigger scale
Varanasi and Sahibganj Multimodal terminal is complete Haldia Multimodal Terminal is also under construction , Patna and Bhagalpur jetty will be upgraded under PPP mode
mother Ganga has served as trade route for thousands of years we are going to revive it again

Jetty is structure where ship is moored.
Where was Terminal is whole of Port ie with cargo stowage facilities, back offices etc.
The newly built Haldia , Varanasi and Sahibganj terminals are very big and looks high-tech but the jetty at Patna and Kolkata are old and outdated IWAI is giving the Patna and Kolkata ports to private companies through a global tendering process to develop it as terminals

It shows just on the border of Bihar and Jharkhand
(Also added this in Chit-Chat)
And yes Its on border; So basically Bihar has a terminal on Ganges on both of ends. Its closer; really close.

Its also close to Kursela(Kosi-Ganga meeting point); I think from Kursela its almost 50 KMS through river.

Sahibganj Multimodal Terminal is huge but A number of other small community jetties and ro ro terminals are mushrooming alongside river Ganga in UP and Bihar you should visit and film them and post the videos here if you see cargo ships film them too if possible film the loading and unloading of ships too read this article published in Forbes India
And this is Rotterdam a city built along river/waterway

With increasing seaborne trading activities and rising marine passenger traffic across the globe, worldwide inland waterways vessels market is poised to exhibit substantial upswing in the coming years. Inland waterways vessels offer a reliable means of long haul, congestion-free transportation at competitive cost, which has favored their penetration on a global scale.

Delhi could be connected through waterways from the rest of the world.
Gadkari, who also holds the shipping portfolio, said the waterways through Ganga would revolutionise the economy of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. “While the waterway from Varanasi to Haldia through river Ganga is almost complete, a Rs 12,000 crore proposal to develop waterways connecting Delhi to Prayagraraj via Mathura, Agra and Itawa has been submitted to the World Bank,” said the minister, adding that once it is finished, Delhi could be connected through waterways from the rest of the world.

The NW-1 along with the proposed Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor and NH-2 constitute the Eastern Transport Corridor of India, connecting the National Capital Region (NCR) with the eastern and North-East States. Additionally, they will function as a link to Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Nepal and other East and Southeast Asian countries.

At present, cargo from the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh takes circuitous land routes to reach the sea ports of Mumbai in Maharashtra and Kandla in Gujarat, rather than going to the much-closer port in Kolkata. The development of NW-1 would help direct this freight to the Kolkata-Haldia complex, reducing logistics costs, which account for 12-13% of India’s GDP, as against 7-8% in developed countries.

4 years ago two inland waterway vessels carrying newly assembled Maruti cars and 1400 tones of goods set off from Varanasi to Haldia passing right through the heart of Bihar on National Waterway One and with that oldest Indian city became the launchpad for Jal Marg Vikas Project

it’s the most economically viable waterway project across the globe
it breaks the landlock of not just Bihar , Jharkhand And UP but also Nepal and Entire North India it’s a part of Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor
The reason I am so optimistic about this project is because I have seen Mr Nitin Gadkari tallking about this project very enthusiastically he was tallking about setting up industries , cold storage facilities , Smart cities , freight villages , Shipbuilding industries , water planes and many other things along the bank of this waterway
