The city’s swanky new Pedestrian Plaza in T Nagar, which was inaugurated recently has become a major attraction for residents. Seven play areas for children, wall murals, seating facilties under the canopy of trees — the entire stretch along Pondy Bazaar now wears a smart look. CE speaks to some of the officials from the Greater Chennai Corporation who were involved in creating this urban space, connecting people more closely with the city.
The primary objective of the plaza, executed under the Smart City Project at a cost of Rs 39.86 crore, is to promote non-motorised transport and a hassle-free walk for pedestrians. It boasts a play area for children, seating arrangements, street lights, wide footpath and a multi-level parking facility. The walls across the length of the road are painted with vibrant colours. This place will also be a cultural hub as it would host music, dance and entertainment programmes.
