Patna: National Ganga River Basin Authority (NGRBA) has got a detailed project report (DPR) prepared to develop a promenade (walkway), plant trees and construct recreation clubs along the Ganga in the city.
The DPR has been completed by architectural consultancy firm, Sen & Lall Consultants. Bihar Urban Infrastructure Development Corporation ( BUIDCO) will be implementing the Rs 125-crore project after NGRBA gives its final nod.
The six-kilometre-long walkway will originate from Collectorate ghat and end at Nauzar ghat in Patna City. Along this walkway, a park will be constructed at Gaighat and one recreation club each will be made at Collectorate and Bhadra ghats.
To provide a lush green look to the bank of the Ganga in the city, urban designers have planned beautiful landscaping. It has been planned to install over 500 benches along this concrete, 20-feet-wide stretch to provide space to walkers to relax. Trees will be planted at the southern side of this walkway to ensure greenery and fresh air.
