Pragati Maidan Set For an INR 2,000 Crore Makeover

Aditya posted on 2nd February

As reported by the Economic Times in this article, the iconic Pragati Maidan is set to be revamped this year.

With a budget of INR 2,000 crores, expect wholesale changes. Plans include razing of entire buildings to make space for new structures including a huge new convention hall, more exhibition halls, underground parking {there needs to be more of this in the city!} and all-new access roads leading to the property.

There are even plans {don't hold your breath} to improve the nearby intersection between Mathura Road and Bhairon Road. However since this would require government clearance, it is not linked to the main project.

Phase I of the reconstruction project is set to last for 36 months, but traders needn't worry, the trade fair will continue being held in a temporary space.
