Srinagar Smart City project
The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is working on different projects in Srinagar city under the Smart City project. In this direction, the government recently said that at a cost of Rs 75 Crores, the riverfront project is being implemented by Jal Shakti Department under the Srinagar Smart City project. The phase-1 is envisaged with modern public utilities and state-of-the-art green space.
Recently Lt Governor Manoj Sinha laid foundation stone for redevelopment of Polo View Road as pedestrian walkway at a cost of Rs 5.3 Crores to provide better ambience and shopping experience to the citizens.
He said that a systematic effort to improve our cities in J&K has been long overdue.
Government has been working on this much-awaited transformation by improving urban services, creation of urban infrastructure and improved system of urban governance to make the cities ecologically sustainable, economically productive and socially equitable.
It is equally important that residents should proactively participate in the urban rejuvenation programs to improve the quality of life, and it is only by the collective efforts that Srinagar city can become a smart city.
Smart City is a people’s movement to make the cities sustainable, efficient to provide improved services to the citizens. We need to come together and realize the dream of Smart City by working in cohesion.
