Smart roads for the digital city

Bengaluru: Come April 2015 and a futuristic stretch of TenderSURE (Specifications for Urban Utilities & Road Execution) road will grace the city, changing the concept of urban street design. Civic utilities are housed in a utility corridor in dedicated spaces with access at regular intervals. Water pipelines will be the closest to buildings on the footpath, electricity conduits after it, then gas pipes followed by data cable conduits, below that sewage lines and lastly, storm water drains. There will be no more digging for the next 10-20 years. Streetlights, a 1.2-1.5m wide cycle track along the road, and landscapes add to the charm. The cost of this is approximately re. 2.5 crore/lane/km.
