The Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA) has decided to construct a gate at the entrance to Sector V. The structure has been proposed near Bowlers’ Den next to Nicco Park and an urban design consultancy will be engaged to prepare a detailed project report.
Officials said the gate will act as a landmark to welcome visitors to Sector V, the IT hub in the state.
In addition, NDITA plans to develop smart streets in Sector V. Two roads — streets 2 and 27 — have been identified for the project and will get new furniture, smart bus stands, fences and benches on the pavements, water ATMs, public artwork, CCTV surveillance, decorative street illumination and signages.
Street 27 is the main road that leads into Sector V from Nicco Park and connects with Ring Road, passing by SDF Building. Street 2 is a crossroad that connects Street 27 and Street 13 at Techno India bus stop.
A consultancy will prepare an urban design scheme with detailed engineering drawings and cost estimate.
NDITA is already working on plans to develop Street 25 — that stretches from RDB Boulevard mall to Infinity Benchmark — as a pedestrian plaza.
