For improving people’s access to the river, a continuous, uninterrupted promenade has been created at two levels along both banks of the river. Ghats at strategic locations punctuate the lower level promenade and provide direct access to the water. From the city level, access points including elevators connect to the lower level promenade. More details about the River Promenade can be viewed here.
For improving the transportation network of the city and providing access to the riverfront facilities and new development, there are two 4-lane wide roads that have been created. On the eastern part of the city, the East River Drive starts from Subhash Bridge and will be connected to the 200 ft. wide road. The West River Drive, on the western part, starts from Dadhichi-Rushi Bridge at Vadaj to Nehru Bridge where it merges with Ashram Road. It recontinues from Ellis Bridge and connects to the 120 ft. road. The roads on either banks include underpass connections. The SRFD streets create a major north-south road link on the Eastern bank and supports the strong north-south connection offered by Ashram Road along the Western bank. The project’s street network can be viewed here.
No, the water is almost continuously discharged for irrigation into the Fatehwadi irrigation canal. It is periodically recharged from the Narmada Canal.
In the long term, as a more sustainable solution, it is being planned to replenish the river with treated water from the sewage treatment plants. Additionally, there are a variety of choices that will reduce the breeding of mosquitoes such as aeration and breeding of appropriate fishes.
