Refurbished, landscaped Church St opens today

A renovated Church Street is all set to be inaugurated by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Thursday. The BBMP says it has finished all the work.

A landscaped island – with palm, areca nut and Ashoka trees, and a lawn – has come up in front of Empire Restaurant. The road has been paved with cobblestones while the footpath has become wider. Smart LED lights adorn the street. The landscaped island was created at a cost of Rs 10 lakh in just two days, an official in the BBMPs horticulture department told DH.

The work on the 750-metre-long road began on February 22, 2017, but the civic body missed several deadlines to open it.
