Designed Street in Action Area 2

I had a meeting with SE PHE, Chief Planner Hidco and ED/CE Hidco to determine the modalities of developing the side streets of Biswa Bangla Sarani in Action Area 2. The area of consideration would be from first Bagjola Bridge near Hidco Bhavan to Swiss Hoteel, and Street 787 till Hanuman Mandir, Street from Owl Junction to Eco Urbann Village and Akankhs More to STP. I said that there should be few smart elements including Wi Fi Hotspots, benches, street kiosks, vegetative screen between road and footpath, trees and dust-bins, and cycle/ wheel-chair-friendly ramps to footpaths. This would be done by PHED, New Town Circle. I advised SE PHED to consult standard guidelines (see picture above , for example) and to consult a landscape architect.
