A morning walk, an evening jog or just to bask in the glory of nature- Yamuna Riverfront is going to be your one stop!
The plan to rejuvenate Yamuna riverfront, the longest running projects of the DDA, could finally be complete in the next two years. This is something that has been in the works for a really long time now and after years of postponing and delaying, there's now a completion date. By 2021, Yamuna riverfront will become your go to spot for a morning walk, where you can enjoy the cool, refreshing breeze.
The planners at DDA have been given a fixed deadline to renovate Yamuna Riverfront. Additionally, the higher authorities have asked for plans to clean out the river itself and replenish the riverbank. Though the latter two will take time, depending on when the plans will be put up, the former will be ready by 2021.
As part of the complete overhaul, Yamuna riverfront will be brought back to its former glory. Already a major tourist and local destination, its appeal has gone down since visitors are usually welcomed by mountains of trash and other unruly sights.
As part of the renovation, an area of 1,500 hectares will undergo changes. Here, along the entire riverfront area, the DDA plans to sow plant seeds- both for beautification as well as for providing cleaner air near the river. Patches of grass, a walking path, installation of street furniture and benches will certainly add a nice touch to the overall vibe of the place.
For better landscaping and plantation, the DDA has decided to rope in a few private firms as well as experts from the field. This will help in making the riverfront an all inclusive place. As per studies, it should be frequented by people of all ages.
For the residents who live close by, it will become a major hub for morning walks and fitness freaks. The evenings could bring about loads of tourists and city folks, who wish to get away from the hectic life in a concrete jungle.
Yamuna river is one of Delhi's biggest and most important treasures. Over the past few years, its condition has reached a pathetic state due to negligence. The good news is that the river will finally be brought back to life with the initiative taken up by the authorities.
