Written by | October 11, 2016 | 0

Vijayawada: The State government is all set to float yet another company for the development of the riverfront park on the banks of River Krishna from Prakasam Barrage to Ibrahimpatnam.

The 32-km long river front would be developed as tourist place to attract international tourists. Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had already decided to make the river front project on international standards and had directed the Krishna district administration and the State tourism department to prepare initial plans. The government is working on creating Riverfront Development Corporation to execute and maintain the project in the public private partnership.

Accordingly, District Collector Babu A held a meeting with the officials to prepare the initial plan. The State government had already developed the river bank area from Prakasam Barrage to Ibrahimpatnam clearing all encroachments during Krishna Pushkaram. Bathing ghats were constructed for Pushkaralu, which have come in handy for the government to make the river festival a successful event.

Having completed the river festival, the government is now focusing on using the area as tourist place providing parks, food courts and water sports all along the river. This would be the biggest riverfront project in the State set to provide better entertainment for the tourists. The government plans to promote international tourism here once the project is completed.
