Three designs for the proposed Integrated Museum and Tourism Complex have been submitted to chiefminister N Chandrababu Naidu in Amaravati on Friday.
All three designs will be uploaded on Vuda’s website within the next 15 days for the public to give its feedback; the best of the three will finally be selected as the blueprint for the tourism complex that will entirely change the look of the beachfront along.
RK Beach Road.
The state government in May, had sanctioned Rs 20 crore to set up the same. The tourism complex will integrate the TU-142 aircraft museum, INS Kursura submarine museum, Victory at Sea memorial, Rajiv Smrithi Bhavan, Sea Harrier Museum and others located within the immediate vicinity of one another, on RK beach road, through underpasses. The Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority officials gave a powerpoint presentation of the preliminary designs for the museum to the CM in June.
According to the initial proposals, the Integrated Museum will get an underground parking facility with a capacity of 800 cars and 400 two-wheelers. As part of another proposal in the project, an underground tunnel will be developed for the vehicular flow in this stretch. The traffic will go underground and come out from the other side. The officials have also preliminary decided to suspend the Sea Harrier aircraft in the air as part of the Sea Harrier Museum in glass surroundings.
“Opinions of the public will be elicited through both the website as well as interactive voice response system (IVRS),” said Basanth Kumar, Vuda vice-chairman.
