    Are these photos taken the same time of year? The amount of water is very different between some shots. That would have a direct bearing on how the project looks, and how well pollutants are flushed out.

    I am a big fan of this project & have been following it's progress in Skyscrapercity forums. It is one exceptional urban redevelopment project which other cities should emulate.

    Amaravati (Andhra's new capital) could end up with much similar river-spanning bridges connecting different portions of the city (which lie in different districts separated by water).

    Hope Naidu emulates Modi model wherever needed.

    They have altered the river banks and also the ecosystem . Nothing grand about it . Rivers are supposed to be as they are.

    River Front is in Ahmedabad, not Gandhinagar. Though Gandhinagar is way better to live with family, peaceful and calmness everywhere.

    Haha good for you . Btw , I had been to daman. It was hilarious to see gujjus pack their cars with booze and head across to vapi. However , daman booze is terrible . Surely counterfeit nakli maal.

    It's quite difficult as Krishna River will be quite dry most of the time except for the rainy season. However Prakasam barage on Krishna River is completely transformed.
