The Tirupati Urban Development Authority (TUDA) has finalised the smart city plan for the temple town. It will come up for discussion at a meeting soon.
Officials of the newly formed Tirupati Smart City Corporation will hold a series of meetings to finalise the development plans. Tirupati will be developed into a smart city at a cost of 1,610 crore. About 1,300 crore will be spent on ‘retrofitting’ of 746 acres covering the railway station and other areas.
According to the detailed plan prepared by TUDA, the temple town will get 24-hour power supply, underground cables and water taps for all households and commercial establishments. Officials will use the latest technology and equipment to provide pure drinking water.
Sensor systems will be used to monitor the quality. One of the main features of the smart city plans will be development of RTC bus stand at a cost of Rs 250 crores. Parking facilities will be created in 13 acres. There will also be a Wi-Fi facility.
“In short, the RTC bus stand will be like a multi-model hub with the e-toilets facility as well,” officials said. The railway station road will also get a facelift as Vishnumargam road. A skywalk will be arranged. Along with the greenery, this particular component will be developed at a cost of 13 crores.
