Hyderabad: The state government would make the Manair River the best tourist spot in the country, Backward Welfare Minister Gangula Kamalakar said on Saturday.
Reviewing the progress of work related to the Manair River Front (MRF) with officials from the Irrigation, Revenue and Tourism departments here, the Minister discussed various issues such as land acquisition and the construction of a retaining wall apart from the finalization of the detailed project report (DPR).
The minister discussed the construction of the retaining wall as well as its height, width and depth, even though 80,000 cusecs to 3.50 lakh cusecs of water are released. Authorities analyzed 100 years of data on the river before making a final decision on building the wall.

Kamalakar reviewed the designs submitted by the agency, which is investigating the river. Construction works have been proposed up to 15 km as part of the project. But in the first phase, construction would be extended to just four km.
The minister instructed officials to complete all designs after completing field inspections with officials from the Irrigation and Command Area Development (CAD) department. He asked authorities to come up with full designs by December by setting up a team with officials from the irrigation and tourism departments.
He instructed the agency to speed up the work of preparing the plans to allow officials to issue calls for tenders for the start of work as soon as possible. The minister said there was no shortage of funds for the prestigious Manair River Front project taken over by the state government.
Plans have been made to provide world-class hospitality facilities, a children’s park, water fountains, boating, biking and walking trails, among other amenities. The necessary measures would be taken to minimize flooding by constructing the retaining wall.
