_ _ _
The Maharashtra Govt.has a 400 crore plan to totally change the face of Shirdi & make it into a world class Pilgrimage plus Tourist Spot.
For which it has appointed MSRDC (Maharashtra State Road Development Corporation) to carry on this project.
The Shirdi SaiBaba Sansthan has studied the Traffic & Crowd management model of 10 Indian Pilgrimages
and 3 International Pligrimages - Jerusalem, Mecca & the Vatican City.
It finally decided to go ahead with the Vatican city based model for Shirdi. _ _ _The Entire Project will be completed in Three Phases within 3-4yrs time.The 1st Phase
will cost Rs.100 crore for the entire Road Development in & around Shirdi.
A Ring-Road will be build around Shirdi so that those who
want to by-pass Shirdi can do so from Out-n-Out itself without entering Shirdi Town thus reducing the Traffic congestion in Shirdi.
The Shirdi SaiBaba Sansthan will bear all the expenses. The work on this Phase has already been started._ _ _The 2nd Phase
will look after the Traffic & Crowd Management plus the Commercial Use of Land
for which a total of 5 plots have been identified & will be purchased by the Shirdi SaiBaba Sansthan for MSRDC
who will develop it under B.O.T & Public-Private Participation.
A Multi-level Parking to accomodate thousands of Cars/Buses will be made.
A big building " Bhakt-Niwas' & Comercial Area will be made for Boarding/Lodging of Devotees and for Commercial use also.
Cars/Buses etc will come straight into this Multi-level Parking and the Devotees will directly go to the Bhakt-Niwas from here.
There is going to be Sky-Walks in Shirdi connecting the "Bhakt-Niwas" directly to the 3 Entry/Exit points of Baba`s Samadhi Temple.
These Sky-Walks will have Lift`s & Escalators too for the benefit of the Aged/Handicapped People.
Thus, there will be less number of people on the road going to & fro the Samadhi Temple.
In short Shirdi will have all the facilities for a world class tourist Spot._ _ _The 3rd Phase
will be building a Green Zone with a Amphi-theatre, Promenades, Benches etc
to make Shirdi a Tourist spot alongside an Pilgrimage for which 8 plots have been identified
& will be purchased by the Shirdi SaiBaba Sansthan for MSRDC who will develop it under B.O.T & Public-Private Participation.Source - http://www.youtube.com/user/alps07" I Prefer to see Matches In the Match-BOx rather than on T.V"Your smOking is InjuriOus to Other`s Health - rOhit beHaL
