Odisha govt approves Rs 50 cr for Konark development project

The Odisha government has approved Rs 50 crore for the Konark Heritage Area Development Project.

The state works department has asked the chief engineer's office to release the project amount to the Odisha Bridge and Construction Corporation (OBCC) for implementing the project.

According to an official, the proposed amount will be used for construction and repairing the roads, shifting vending zones to the right place and the development of the pedestrian area.

This year in January, the state government announced the plan of the development project. It focuses on transforming the infrastructure around the Konark Sun Temple. The redevelopment project is based on four aspects, including the celebration of the grandeur of the Sun Temple, enhancing visitors' experience, boosting local businesses, and strengthening tourism. Around Rs 150 crore will be spent on the project.

The remaining amount for the project will be released as the work progresses. The government has approved a tender for the construction of a six-lane road from Chandrabhaga to Kakatpur junction. The development work on the Konark ring road is already ongoing.

The key development works include the up-gradation of the entrance of the 13th century Sun Temple, landscaping and the development of pedestrian areas, parking, and revamping of the open-air theatre will be taken up by the Archaeological Survey of India.
