Bhubaneswar29/7/17:: The Board of Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) approved the L1 bidder M/S RKD Construction Pvt. Ltd. for implementation of the Smart Janpath Project for redevelopment of Janpath Road including streetscape design, beautification, landscaping, intersection redesign and infrastructure upgrades in Bhubaneswar’s Town Centre District (BTCD) under Smart Cities Mission on Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) mode.

Janpath Street scape project has been conceived as a part of Bhubaneswar Smart City Proposal. This project mainly focuses on transforming the city’s existing roadway from an automobile-oriented design to a street that is designed to provide safe, comfortable and convenient access for a complete set of users and at the same time creating more active spaces for people to walk and gather.

Janpath provides an urban design opportunity for such development due to its width or the right of way (RoW) and under-utilized spaces along the streets. While the entire road stretch is of 5.5 km from Vani Vihar to Sishu Bhawan Square the project also includes a 0.3 km-long road from Master Canteen to Bhubaneswar Railway Station. So the total length of the project is of 5.8 km.
