After a four month long hiatus, one of Jaipur's most famous and common jogging park, Smriti Van is finally reopening for the public. Aimed to be recluse for morning walkers and joggers, the park is certainly a great place to start your day. Now that it will be reopening, Jaipurites can experience nature right here in the city.

The park was closed for the past several months due to a leopard being at large in a nearby forest. It seems that the wild cat has been contained, however, there is no confirmation on this.

Smriti Van can be accessed by those of you who are willing to sign an undertaking and get a proper entry ID. The entire procedure will be charged for and you'll have to shell out ₹55 for just one of these. This can be alluded to the fact that the leopard still roams free.

Essentially, signing up for this is mandatory, meaning that those of you who do go in know the risks involved. To keep a tab on the comings and goings of people, the forms and ID cards should help. Apart from that, there are also strict timing restrictions. Visitors can only be present in Smriti Van park from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM, which should be enough for a walk or a jog.

With the leopard on the loose, the authorities have taken a few precautionary measures- registration and ID being one of them. They have installed signages, route markers and have made a designated track, which should be enough to keep you out of harm's way. The signages and markers should help you navigate your way through the park in case you're lost.

So, as it turns out, the park is going to be open for you folks, but just during the mornings. If you're looking to start your day face to face with a leopard, you know where to be.

Like most other places in India, Jaipur's traffic happens to be a huge mess. The traffic condition is often abysmal and there seems to be no respite from it, despite several efforts. In the works is a rather minor but hugely impactful project. In Jaipur, to ease out the traffic 9 road circles will undergo a design change.

The Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) has undertaken this task following a series of suggestions regarding the aforementioned issue. The goal is to make these traffic circles accident free and easy to navigate. The design overhaul of these chaurahas will certainly bring about a change in the movement of traffic in Jaipur.

What's the update?

9 of the most congested traffic circles in Jaipur will be altered as part of a project by the JDA. Namely, these are the traffic circles at JDA Circle Square, OTS Circle Square, Rambagh Square, Collectorate Circle, Jawahar Circle, Riddhi-Siddhi Junction, Mansarovar Metro Station, B-2 Bypass, New Sanganer Road Junction.

Currently, these are among the most packed and accident prone circles in the city. This point was reiterated by a survey that the JDA conducted, which proved to have similar results. As part of the design change, adjoining and approach roads will now have zebra crossing marks, while the circle itself will based on an island design complete with medians and a pole.

Implementing these design changes and alterations is expected to take about 6 months, during which time these busy routes will have to be bypassed. To cater for this, there will be bypass roads that daily commuters can use. Additionally, the budget for implementing the project is said to be around ₹1.5 crores. In the future, there are also plans to construct flyovers in the area, if this move has a minimal impact.
