NMC set to begin developmental work at Kasturchand Park


Nagpur : The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) is set to execute developmental works at Kasturchand Park (KP). Works worth Rs 4.52 crore will be undertaken at the Grade I heritage open space for providing basic amenities to the sportsperson, morning walkers and visitors.

NMC’s projects department has tabled a proposal before the standing committee to issue work order to MD Constructions. The committee will decide on the proposal on Tuesday. Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had approved Rs 5 crore for the purpose a year ago.

NMC has planned to strengthen KP’s compound wall. Iron grills will be erected upon the wall to increase height. Three main gates will be redeveloped. Public toilets will be constructed at two locations — towards 118 Battalion and Shri Mohini Complex square.

Parking for four-wheelers and two-wheelers will be developed in a proper manner. Streetlights and tracklights will be put up. Storm water drain network will also be laid to prevent water logging and damage to the playground.

The standing committee will also discuss the proposal to appoint a consortium of Vestien Global Work Places Services Pvt Ltd and Venkateshwara Habitat as sales management agency for London Street project. The company will be paid 1.24% of total revenue.
