"The selection, presentation of project report, sanction of estimate, invitation of tenders for technical and financial bid would be completed before Oct 15, Yadav said."
Ghaziabad, July 16 - The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) plans to make this National Capital Region (NCR) town a world class city with ultra-modern facilities with an investment of Rs.20 crore, an official said Wednesday.
Making a presentation to media persons, GDA vice chairman Santosh Kumar Yadav said the town's commercial hub - Raj Nagar District Centre (RDC) - would be made the most comfortable shopping complex in the NCR.
It would contain a parking lot, along with kiosks of international brands and over two dozen nationalized banks.
A gate would be constructed at the entry point from national highway-24, and ornamental poles would be erected alongside roads, he said.
The roads are being designed to accommodate car parking in the middle. They would have a three-metre-wide footpath and a green strip with benches and covered dustbins. All major drains would be covered with slabs so that they could be used as footpaths.
Old electric transformers would be replaced by compressed oil transformers which consume less space and have more capacity.
A multi-level parking has also been designed in which 750 cars could be accommodated in two basements, plus a ground floor where 90 additional cars could be parked.
The selection, presentation of project report, sanction of estimate, invitation of tenders for technical and financial bid would be completed before Oct 15, Yadav said.
Work would start immediately after finalising the bids.
