The ever famous Indore’s food street – ‘Chhappan Dukaan’ is all set to get a smart makeover. Indore Smart City Development Limited (ISCDL) will revamp the entire area as ‘smart food street’. The entire project would cost around Rs 4 crore and the plan would be implemented in 45 days.
The work will commence from January 14 and in order to facilitate smooth work, the area will be made ‘No Vehicle’ zone. On a trial basis, entry of vehicles will be restricted between MG road and Chandni Chowk from January 14 onwards.
Furthermore, to restrain from causing any kind of inconvenience to the citizens, a mechanized parking facility with the capacity to accommodate at least 200 two-wheelers and 80 four-wheelers has already been planned in the area, and people visiting the area will have alternative space at Vivekanand School and garden space near Gadi Adda. Besides a foot-over-bridge has also been planned near the Dolphin Hospital area to provide connectivity from the RS Bhandari Marg area.
As a part of the makeover, the entire area will be developed as smart food street with façade development of all shops, LED lightings, designer pavement space, plantation and greenery.
In addition to this, an open-air theatre would also be developed in the area for hosting public events and gatherings. Also, taking a step further to mind the usage of plastic, there would be water dispensers near food outlets to prevent visitors from using plastic water bottles.
A private agency has already been engaged in project work. The entire project has to be completed before Holi which falls on March 9 this year.
