Little less conversation, a little more action

PANAJI: Plans will come and plans will go, but Panaji will always remain the same. This skeptical sentiment seems to be the general feeling of Panjimites, who have, in the past decade, seen a number of master plans promise a city free of traffic snarls, water scarcity, parking problems and that nasty, lingering garbage smell. 'Imagine Panaji', drawn up by architects from Spanish consultancy firm LKS, may by far be the best presented, but it certainly is not new, say experts.

PANAJI: A bridge across River Mandovi from Betim to Campal promenade and city riverfront development are some of the major highlights of the city development plan as revealed during the presentation on ‘Holistic design of infrastructure for the capital city’, held at the Secretariat on Wednesday.

PANAJI: The restoration of the Mala-Fontainhas Latin quarter, conservation of the city heritage structures, beautification of St Inez creek, implementation of Traffic Decongestion Plan, revamping of parks and gardens, restructuring of pavements, provision of Bus Rapid Transit System (BRTS), and putting storm water drainage in place, will be some of the aspects to be included in the City Development Plan of the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) for the capital city of Panaji.
