RIVER­FRONT PROJECT

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT -

Taj Her­itage Cor­ri­dor—the river­front project of for­mer Ut­tar Pradesh chief min­is­ter Mayawati—com­pris­ing food plazas and malls, planned be­tween the Agra Fort and the Taj was shelved on Supreme Court's or­ders as it could have been a threat to the mon­u­ment. Sand ac­cu­mu­lated in the re­claimed river bed can erode the mar­ble sur­face dur­ing sand storms, says ASI. The site is yet to be turned into a green belt as di­rected by the court.
