Aundh area in Pune City is becoming famous for its “Smart Street”. Under the initiative of Smart City, Aundh area’s footpaths have got completely new and smart look. Previously footpaths in the area were not that large and it was difficult for pedestrians to walk on footpaths. So from March 2017 work started for renovation of streets and now we can experience all new streets.
Streets beautification is also maintained by preserving trees on streets. Streets are designed in such a manner so that physically challenged people can also use these streets by making a use of wheelchairs. Under Smart City initiative Aundh area is also getting ready for future “Smart Bus Stops” and “Smart Toilets”.
So following the footsteps of Aundh for “Smart Street”, other cities in country are also in process for making of such streets. Nashik, Varanasi, Chennai, Dharamshala and many other cities are in the list. Officials from these cities have seen the work of Aundh and now they are taking further steps.
