Plantation drives to take place along the medians of all important roads throughout the city.
As a step towards revamping the state capital of Rajasthan, Jaipur Development Authority is working towards a beautification project with an aim to increase the city's green cover. According to reports, the stated proposal would cost an amount of over 4.3 crores. The objectives of the project are focused towards better maintenance of parks and adorning the medians of major streets and roads.
Over one lakh saplings to be planted in the first phase
Reportedly, around one lakh saplings of Chrysanthemum and Petunia will be planted. The current plans suggest that plantation drives coupled with bi-annual preservation works would be initiated along the medians of Queens Road, Prince Road, Sanjay Nagar and C-zone Bypass Ajmer road.
In addition to this, Civil Lines, Statue Circle and elevated road medians are also being covered under the beautification project. The proposal would also extend to the road connecting Jaipur railway station to Mansarover Metro station and Sanganer and Sitapur flyovers. While the administration has distributed the total amount amongst various zones, it is expected that the implementation of the project would begin soon.
A city of striking flora amid arid desert
Despite being the capital of a state which extends over vast lands of arid desert, Jaipur's ecology presents a wide variety of flora. From the medicinal Satawari flower to the beautiful Red Orchid trees and Bougainvillea, Jaipur's plant cover arrests all its visitors. Amongst all the flowering plants that find a presence in Jaipur, Chrysanthemum and Petunia are the highlights making them the top choices for the amelioration project.
