Mysuru, January 17:- The construction works of a pedestrian subway that connects Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens at Indiranagar here was launched on Friday.
The pedestrian subway is being constructed by Zoo Authority of Karnataka (ZAK) at a cost of Rs 1.75 crore. The subway will be 24 metre long, 13 feet high and 4.9 metre wide.
“Summer holidays for schools and colleges will begin in April. Tourists will come in large numbers. We will complete the work by the end of March,” said assistant executive engineer of the zoo Aravind.
Tourists from across India and the world visit Mysuru Zoo throughout the year. Tourists find it hard to cross the road especially when the vehicle traffic density is high. Hence, the ZAK has taken up the work to construct the subway that connects the zoo to parking zone. A separate entry and exit from the zoo to the subway will also be provided. (MN, NGB)
