Project Description

Silvassa Municipal Corporation is engaged with several development activities in Silvassa. As part of various development programs, a riverfront along river Pipariya is also being planned. It is intended to be developed as a leisure place for the locals and visitors. An environment responsive design will provide the neighbourhood and the city with a number of recreational facilities which includes theme based plazas, maidan, leisure activity areas, a garden of medicinal plants, a new crematorium, pedestrian bridge and walkways at different levels to provide accessibility during increase in water table.

Major infill along the river edge has been avoided as it will narrow the existing water channel. The southern edge of the river which is being used by the community for their daily chores, is now integrated with the new development and made accessible without disturbing its connectivity with the water edge.
