Design Concept of Bus Terminus-cum-Commercial Centre frozen

Today M/s Egis, the design consultants gave a revised presentation of the concept of the Inter-State Bus Terminal cum Commercial Centre based on the observations made by us earlier. They have adopted a modular approach so that a ground level parking area can be dovetailed with the monorail system once that comes into being. There will be 100 bus bays, level separated arrival and departure lounges like airport arrivals and departures, retail spaces, city bus connections, a 100 room 3 star 'Ginger' type hotel, banquet halls, and a set of office complexes. They will now embark upon detailed design.

The Kolpex 2015 was inaugurated today at Najrul Tirtha. A first day cove was published with Howrah Bridge as the theme. There was a sit and draw competition for schoolchildren. I requested the CPMG to set up a smart post office at New Town. Two pictures:
