02 Jan 2019 Long Read

Shivamogga Smart City Corporation has selected about 74 projects to be taken up under smart city. Of these 60 are SCM funded, six projects are taken up in PPP and eight under convergence, which is other departments executing the work under the ambit of the smart cities mission. These eight projects are ongoing and are completely funded by the state government. Under the Smart Cities mission, the city has selected projects at a total cost of Rs 11.84 billion; these are under various stages of project preparation or execution or tendering. “We recently floated tenders to the tune of Rs 2 billion, for which we are soon awarding work orders. Besides, we recently called for bids for the second time for two road packages worth Rs 1.4 billion and Rs 700 million each, with the last date for submission being December 22, 2018,” Charulata Somal, Managing Director, Shivamogga Smart City Corporation, and Commissioner, Shimoga City Corporation.
Apart from these, several DPRs are being prepared. The city has projects to the tune of Rs 4.44 billion for which DPRs are under preparation; the tenders for these will be announced in the coming two to three months. These include works for conservation of buildings for which we are preparing the concept; road works for last-mile connectivity and Ring Road improvement at about Rs 900 million. “Also, we will be tendering works for riverfront development – the frontline project of the smart city programme – at an estimated Rs 1.4 billion for the civil engineering component,” says Somal. Other projects include heritage works, with certain focal points of importance like the Shivappanaika Palace (known as Heritage Walk), which actually depicts the heritage of Shimoga city. So, we be developing about a 2-km stretch of roads – face-lifting existing roads as well as taking all the utilities underground – around these heritage places. The heritage works include a hard component such as the physical structure and a soft component wherein an app will provide an audio guide at important points while passing through the road. The corporation is planning to tender out all the works for this before March.
