These days it’s becoming really difficult to find lush green spaces amidst most overpopulated Indian cities. More and more youngsters of today are spending their time with their gadgets rather than coming out and taking a walk in fresh air. As various kinds of health problems like heart diseases, hypertension, obesity etc. mount, it’s becoming more important than ever to go out for walks if heading to the gym is not your cup of tea.
And that’s where something like the Lucknow Gomti Riverfront comes in. Constantly ranked among the most polluted cities on the planet, Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh in India has been in desperate need for green spaces. And looks like finally a start has been made. This 1500 crore project has involved cleaning up the Gomti river which flows through the city along with ensuring that more than 30 or so nullahs are cleaned and the sewage is not dumped into the river.
