Andhra has mega tourism projects on anvil

Andhra Pradesh Tourism department, which had a subdued year in 2013 with several agitations across the state for various reasons, now looks forward for 2014 to be more eventful. It has several projects on the anvil for the year, which are expected to prove good revenue earners for the department.

The Central government had sanctioned Rs 220 crore worth projects for the state tourism which include a mega circuit, couple of mini circuits, destination development projects and a state-of-the-art international convention centre at Tirupati on the lines of Hyderabad International Convention Centre, which are expected to be grounded this year.

Most important of the projects is mega circuit of Konaseema-Bhadrachalam River Circuit. β€˜β€™The estimated cost of the project is Rs 50 crore and as part of it, new cottages at different places along the Godavari River between Pattiseema and Pochavaram near Bhadrachalam will be constructed. Jetties will be constructed at the vantage points near the cottages. New water crafts including house boats will be acquired and the existing river circuits on Godavari River will be made more attractive,’’ APTDC executive director Madhusudhan told Express.
