New Delhi: After a visit to the site on Thursday, Hardeep Singh Puri, the Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs, said that construction on the Central Vista Project is progressing according to plan.
"Work is on schedule. Quick progress being made. The new-look Central Vista Avenue, with a judicious mix of modern with traditional, will redefine the heart of the city. More public spaces. Easier public access. Greener and better," said Puri in a tweet.
Lauding the workers for giving shape to architectural heritage, Puri in another tweet said, "Toil and perseverance of our workers are giving shape to architectural heritage for the future generations. I visited the Central Vista Avenue and New Parliament sites to take stock today. Happy to inform the 'Vidvaans' that their ice cream evenings are going to get even better!"
In December 2020, the Prime Minister inaugurated the Central Vista Development project. The project intends to revamp 86 acres of land in Delhi, includes Rajpath, Parliament House, Rashtrapati Bhavan, India Gate, North Block, South Block, Shastri Bhavan, and Udyog Bhavan.
A new Parliament building, a common secretariat for Central government offices, the Prime Minister's office and house, the Special Protection Group building, and the Vice-President Enclave are all part of the project.
The construction work for the project is being carried out since January 5, 2021, after the top court dismissed petitions challenging the project.
