Cm Lays Foundation Stones For 1777-crore Infra Projects In City | Guwahati News

Guwahati: Foundation stones were laid in the city on Thursday by chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma for infrastructure development projects worth around Rs 1,777 crore.
Bhumi puja was also conducted for several of these projects.
The chief minister said the infrastructure projects would act as catalysts in helping the government realise its aims and ambitions to transform Guwahati as the nerve-centre of the region in terms of economy, industry, cultural affairs and tourism.
He added that the new Raj Bhavan, once completed, would stand out as one of the most magnificent governor’s residences in the country and the state government will ensure the project is completed within the stipulated time.
A redeveloped Guwahati police reserve complex at Panbazar and a new office building for the police commissioner would prove immensely beneficial for the police in efficiently and effectively carrying out their official duties.
The Assam government has 46 directorates scattered in different parts of the city. All the directorates will be grouped in the integrated directorate complex at Betkuchi, which is near the inter-state bus terminal (ISBT).
Moreover, the offices of the Kamrup (Metro) district administration will be brought to the integrated deputy commissioner’s office at Rupnagar.
“Till date, visiting several offices in Guwahati has been time consuming. The integrated office buildings will be beneficial for the people as far as time management and access to the offices are concerned,” he added.
Moreover, he said, the construction of the integrated complex near the ISBT on the national highway will help in reducing traffic congestion as around 10,000 vehicles will not enter the city headed to the directorates. They will travel through the national highway.
The spaces that would be freed up after the offices are shifted to their new location would be utilised for the welfare of the public in the form of parks and gardens.
