A “Green Belt’ will be developed by the Bihar State road Construction Department (BSRCD) in four lane with the help of State Environment , Forest and Climate Department. The belt will be on the proposed lane between R-Block and Digha.
The road between R-Block and Digha is 6.3 km stretch in which the belt will be developed at a stretch of 4.2km between service lane and main road. The elevated road will be exempted.
Under this project, the department has divided the green belt into three parts. The first road will cover of 1 km from R-Block to Hartali More. The second road will be Visheshwarya Bhawan to Rajiv Nagar of 1.5 km and the third road will be developed from Rajiv Nagar to Digha covering 1.7 km.

BSRCD managing director Sanjay Kumar Agarwal said, “With the commencement of tree translocation, work for creating the green belt has already started. All trees will be trans-located on this green belt which is to be developed between service lane and main road. But since these trees will not be sufficient, we have planned to plant another 1000 tress on the stretch. Since we don’t have any green belt in city, it will be the first of its kind.”
Only the tree with good growth will be planted by the department and the growth will be monitored by the forest department. The trees will not cause any obstruction in movement of vehicles. Mr. Agarwal also added, “We have specifically kept such things in mind. Our aim is to create more greenery in this city.”
Beside this Green Belt project, the four lane will also be equipped with solar enabled streetlights having facilities of closed circuit television cameras.
