‘Smart’ signs for Bhubaneswar

The Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL), the special purpose vehicle executing the smart city projects, will replace the old signages across the city with the new ones at a cost of Rs 42.82 lakhs.

The signposts are being installed on the new adaptive traffic signal posts and the plan is to expand the initiative at other such places in the city.

“We have installed some signage on a pilot basis and are inviting proposals from bidders to complete the job. The tender process will be over in June and the project will be complete by September,” said a BSCL official.

In the first phase, these new signages will be installed at five locations including Housing Board Square, Institute of Engineer Square, Nicco Park Square, DM School Square and Anand Bazaar Square. The next phase will include 45 locations.

For the project, the authorities have divided the city into five sectors – Janpath, Sachivalaya Marg, Ekamra Marg, Nadankanan Road, Bidyut Marg and Lewis Road.

“We will first install the signage on the new traffic poles and later shift to the others,” the official said.
