PANAJI: The narrow streets and alleys of Panaji at TB Cunha Riviera Road, the central part of Cafe Bhonsle Square and TB Cunha Road (Main) are going to be beautified in three phases over the next 12 months. The space will be designed in such a way that in the future it can be developed for pedestrianization by the Panaji City Corporation (CCP). “We are trying to make Panaji friendly for tourists and more convenient for residents by giving it a touch of the old colonial regime with wide avenues, seats, tree-lined plazas and roads,” the commissioner said. of the CCP, Agnelo Fernandes. “Roads under this project will be paved with special cobblestones to encourage pedestrianization on the street much like in the south of France where people walk around and sit on wrought iron furniture,” said he declared. The works to be undertaken by Imagine Panaji Smart City Development Ltd (IPSCDL) will include paving, pathway, drainage, road signs etc. The budget for the whole project is Rs 3.7 crore for the three phases. During the execution, vehicles will not be allowed to park in the area. “The entire project will take approximately 12 months to complete, in phases,” said Silvano Sequeira, Deputy Director, Civil, Smart City. Last week, work on the TB Cunha Riviera road began with traffic police sealing off the entrance to the street. In another project under Smart City, IPSCDL will occupy eight kilometers of city roads. “It is part of the universal walkways project so that the appearance of a heritage city is maintained,” said Samiuddin Shaikh, Deputy Director, Engineering, Smart City. “This street deserves to be restored to its former glory and efforts to spruce it up should be encouraged. However, CCP must ensure that people’s businesses are not inconvenienced during the process,” said Rohidas Dessai, Founding Owner of the Ritz Classic restaurant.
