GELEPHU STRUCTURE PLAN

Bhutan

The structure plan of Gelephu is more than a growth center; it is the focal point of Bhutan’s future manufacturing sector, which will attract global investment, with highly skilled blue collar labors, transport, energy, water and developed industrial plots.

The plan will create a new entertainment and retail hub, to support a future managerial community; enhanced roads and bye-pass highway; segment of the new east-west southern regional highway; open space system for sports, recreation and gardens; urban villages linked through finger-like green cycle and walkways, river training for the mao chhu and a multi-modal transport terminal wherein rail, air, bus and taxi services use the same terminal facilities.

Separate cargo and vehicular gateways will facilitate tourists visiting the country. an expressway between the administrative town of sarpang and the growth center of gelephu will serve the industrial estate, transport hub, dry port, duty free zone, transport repair and servicing center and container center.
