India: Vertical gardens start coming up at main intersections in Prayagraj

Presently, the work of installing a vertical garden at Subash crossing of posh Civil Lines locality of Prayagarj is underway. Besides, these vertical gardens will be set up at MLN Medical College crossing and Balson crossing soon.

Continuing with the task of beautifying Sangam city and minimizing air pollution, the district administration is installing vertical gardens at all major traffic crossings of Prayagraj, informed municipal officials.

"These gardens are being installed under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative of a private bank. Besides making the city intersections look beautiful, these gardens would also help reduce pollution levels in the city," said environment engineer Prayagraj Nagar Nigam (PNN), Uttam Verma.

"Workers are busy placing the plants on both sides of the frame, which would be irrigated by a network of pipelines using 'drip irrigation' technique. Plants having colorful leaves have been planted in these gardens. Besides, these varieties need less maintenance," he said.
