New parking system and amenities will require cleaning services
Patna Smart City Limited (PSCL) has approved several ambitious schemes aimed at better civic amenities in the state capital. It has decided to chalk up a plan to develop an automated puzzle parking system across the city, including at the Maurya Lok complex, at the Tumtum stand near the railway station, at Pant Bhawan and Vidyut Bhawan, and Pili Kothi near Boring Canal Road. The automated parking will also come up at the old milk market near the railway station and in front of the Vikas Bhawan.
The PSCL chairman asked officials to prepare the plans for the proposed parking systems and get necessary no-objection certificates so that approval for the projects can be taken up in the next board meeting.
In another important decision, the PSCL board gave its nod for the construction of a wider road between Beer Chand Patel Marg and Vidyut Bhawan, providing smooth connectivity of vehicles to Bailey Road and easing the vehicular congestion at the Income Tax roundabout.
Instructions were also issued for the preparation of a detailed project report (DPR) for the redevelopment of Bakarganj Nullah by April 30.
Officials were asked to work at a war-footing on all smart city projects in the state capital, so that Patna‘s ranking in 100 smart cities in the country can come under the top 20. The city’s smart city raking improved from 38 in January to 29 in April.
