Even the colours chosen reflects the hues of kites. To feel the joy of walking above the river, this glass foot-over bridge is being constructed between Sardar Bridge and Ellis Bridge. The bridge is solely for the walking purpose and would also have seating arrangements for the people to enjoy the beauty of the river from the bridge. Plantation of various trees will also be done to have some green cover on the bridge.
The linear park extends between Gandhi Bridge and Nehru Bridge on the eastern riverbank and is planned with secure play areas for children, walking, jogging and other recreational facilities, and areas for outdoor performances and concerts.
This area, prior to the riverfront project, was lined with private hotels and other development. The riverbed was occupied with slums and adjoining areas were low-lying, vulnerable to flooding. Land reclamation in this part has provided the opportunity to reduce the risk of flooding, and create land to develop a public park that can serve the dense neighborhoods. The slum households in this area have been relocated to newly constructed housing within city limits.

It has been envisioned as a multifaceted convention venue with adaptable spaces that will be equipped with the latest technological equipments and state-of-the-art facilities. With its strategic location in the heart of the city, the centre shall address the requirements of the exhibitors and visitors alike.
