The VVIP residents of Vikramaditya Marg and adjoining Gautampalli and Mall Avenue areas may soon get direct connectivity to Janeshwar Mishra park, which is being developed on around 350 acres land in Gomti Nagar extension area.
The Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) will conduct a survey to find the most suitable alignment for a connecting road, parallel to the railway line between railway stations of Dilkusha and Malhore. A new bridge will also be constructed over the Gomti river for this road.
The LDA has already invited tenders to hire a firm to conduct a survey between Vikramditya Marg and Harit Vihar, that is Janeshwar Mishra park. When contacted, LDA vice-chairman Rajeev Aggarwal said he did not have detailed information about the work.
Another LDA official said that a topographical study has to be conducted to find a suitable route to connect Vikramaditya Marg to the park, which is being upgraded by the Akhilesh Yadav government. "The plan is to construct a 2 km road starting somewhere near the railway crossing on Vikramaditya Marg and finish near a Master Plan road ending at Gomti embankment adjacent to Janeshwar Mishra park," the official said. At present, one has to drive at least 10 km to reach Janeshwar Mishra park via Lohia Path.
Janeshwar Mishra park will have various facilities, including a cycle track, walking tracks, public utilities, water bodies, fountains, etc.
