Several eco-friendly

The Tirupati Smart City Corporation Limited (TSCCL) advisory committee has approved several eco-friendly initiatives including setting up of battery charging stations, modular toilets and dormitories for RTC commuters. The proposed battery recharging stations at 13 points will meet the needs of e-bikes, e-cars and e-auto rickshaws that are already plying on the streets but lack adequate charging stations.

TSSCL has proposed to purchase 40 e-bikes for police patrol. The corporation also wanted to create amenities like modular toilets and dormitories, multi-level car parking facilities for the convenience of RTC commuters. Similarly, the corporation proposed to modernize the Harishchandra Smasana Vatika (graveyard). A senior official said work for the modernization of graveyard and for the construction of a gas burner crematorium, which were expected to be completed before September 10.

The corporation has also proposed to build a 25 MLD drainage water treatment sewage plant, new cc roads in dwelling areas and sports facility at Nehru Municipal High School grounds.
