TCGL floats tenders for development of riverfront on the Kharo River in Junagadh

Manavadar, a town in Junagadh district, is set to get a riverfront along the banks of the Kharo River, for which the Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Limited (TCGL) has floated tenders.

 The TCGL, a public sector undertaking under the aegis of the Gujarat Tourism Department, has floated tenders for developing a riverfront on the east bank of Kharo River that flows on the eastern periphery of Manavadar town. The TCGL, whose mandate is to promote tourism and tourism infrastructure in the state, estimates the project to cost INR 25 crore and is expected to be completed in 18 months.

TCGL officials told The Indian Express that in the first phase of the project, the eastern bank of Kharo River will be developed. “Initially, there were plans to develop a riverfront on either bank of the river. But then it was decided to develop only the east front of the river in the first phase. The western bank development can be taken up at a later stage,” said an officer.

The riverfront will cover the riverbank stretch beginning from the historic Navnala Bridge to Kharo veer 2.1 km downstream. The TCGL will construct a retaining wall, reclaim land and develop a flower garden, an amphitheatre, a walkway, an open-air yoga centre and three toilet blocks.
An officer privy to the project said, “The plan is to follow the model of Sabarmati riverfront in Ahmedabad.”

With this, Manavadar is set to become the second town in Saurashtra region of the state to have a riverfront. Rajkot Municipal Corporation is also in the process of developing Aji riverfront in Rajkot. (Source: The Indian Express)
