Vijayawada: Chinese architects of Guizhoc International Investment Company, China, who visited the Cultural Centre of Vijayawada on Saturday said that they would collaborate with the Cultural Centre to execute the project of reflecting Andhra art and culture at Pushkar ghats in the city.

In a release, the Cultural Centre of Vijayawada CEO Mr E. Siva Nagi Redddy said that the GIIC team visited the Cultural centre and discussed the government’s proposal to bring up Andhra Pradesh’s art and culture between Prakasam Barrage and Bhavani Island, a 2.2 kilometer stretch to attract visitors to the coming Krishna Pushkaralu.

The GIIC is appointed by state government for it and the company is going to collaborate with the team of cultural centre and execute the project. Development of Durga Ghat and beautification of canals are important areas in the project. Meanwhile, the tenders process for road projects in and around Amaravati capital city will be completed in the next one month.

Now the officials of the CRDA are making plans to finalise road work tenders as early as possible. According to officials, the road works would begin before the Amaravati capital city works. The state government planned to lay the roads inside and also around the Amaravati capital city location. Already the government has completed the alignments inside the Amaravati capital city location.

The outer ring road plans were finalised and the central government too approved the project. As part of state plans, the government cleared the proposal for construction of bridge on Krishna River to Amaravati capital city. Steps have been taken to construct another flyover in eastern side, which connects from Chennai-Howrah highway to Amaravati capital city.

The government feels that road connectivity is important for Amaravati capital city and it would only boost the image of the city and also further developments. It is keen to complete one bridge and main connectivity road to Amaravati capital city along with internal roads by 2018.

According to municipal minister P. Narayana, the tender process would begin next month and road works would be taken up immediately on priority basis. The government has taken precautions to avoid the loss for residences with road projects, he added.
