Bhubaneswar flyover spaces will be decorated with indigenous and other ornamental creepers

Bhubaneswar:23/10/19: Non-flowering trees and under flyover spaces will be decorated with indigenous and other ornamental creepers to give smart city Bhubaneswar a new look and better aesthetics.

This will be undertaken in the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) owned parks, road-side spaces and across the city as well.

The creepers that bloom not only serve practical purposes (erosion control, weed suppression etc) in this role but also add great beauty to the landscape. Because they grow so quickly, creepers are ideal for fast and noticeable changes to landscape aesthetic.

Also, since they take up little to no ground space (unless used as ground cover), they are going to be used for adding aesthetic and colourful vegetation to non-flowering trees.

Plantation will be carried out in 11 parks including 5 city-level parks and 6 colony-level parks, in the initial stage. They will be implemented in other parks across the city later this year.

Creepers will also be planted on roadside trees, with special attention given to creepers which bloom in winter, as it is the major tourist season and Temple City attracts its major tourism footfall during the winter days.

Horticulture and landscape experts working for BDA and BMC have found that the non-flowering plants despite having dense and beautiful foliage could not attract gaze of the visitors to the parks and roadside landscapes.
