The city’s government will upgrade roads; build pavements, parks, and lighting and drainage systems along the rivers, as well as plan parking lots and advertising billboards.
The project will help enhance the environment and drainage and reduce traffic jams in the city.
The city’s government will delegate the duty of keeping each section of river clean to local authorities of districts, who will also be responsible for preventing construction projected from being damaged.
