The project aims to provide Ahmedabad with a meaningful waterfront environment along the banks of the Sabarmati River and to redefine an identity of Ahmedabad around the river. The project looks to reconnect the city with the river and positively transform the neglected aspects of the riverfront.
The objectives of this multidimensional project can be categorised under three topics-
Environmental Improvement: reduction in erosion and flood to safeguard the city; sewage diversion to clean the river; water retention and recharge.
Social Infrastructure: rehabilitation and resettlement of riverbed dwellers and activities; creation of parks and public spaces; provision of socio-cultural amenities for the city.
Sustainable Development: generation of resources, revitalisation of neighbourhoods.
