The Assam Government has decided to construct entry gates at Borjhar and Khanapara reflecting the heritage of the state. The decision was taken in a review meeting on Thursday to discuss the implementation of Smart City project under the Chairmanship of Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal.
CM Sonowal also announced that a state-of-the-art stadium near B.Barooah Cancer institute having facilities for indoor and outdoor games will be constructed soon. The CM also announced the construction of 1.3 km iconic bridge at Brahmaputra Riverfront as a part of the smart city project.
Sonowal also said that homes for homeless will be built and directed the officials of Guwahati Development Department to carry out a survey to identify the homeless people in the city and asked them to develop the available space on the lower parts of the flyovers as night shelter area for the homeless with proper sanitary toilet and other modern facilities. He also directed the officials to arrange double parking facility at the middle part of the flyovers wherever available.
During the review meeting, Sonowal also asked the concerned department to expeditiously earmark the boundary of Deepor Beel so that steps could be taken to make the water body free from pollution.
