Jaipur: Rajasthan chief minister Vashundara Raje inaugurated SMS Hospital – Truma Center Underpass on Thursday. Its interiors are so stunningly beautiful that we highly recommend you just take a stroll to enjoy its beauty firsthand. If you are busy and haven’t got the time to do that, here is a sneak peek into its beautiful wall paintings and walkway.
Raje too was impressed with its interiors. She said during the inauguration ceremony that the onus of ensuring that the underpass stayed beautiful was on pedestrians. She said that people shouldn’t litter it with garbage or spit.
Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) spent nearly Rs 14.50 crore to construct the SMS-Trauma Center underpass. The design plan was created under the supervision of SMS Medical College principal Dr US Agarwal.
The underpass will make convenient for people to commute between SMS Hospital and the newly constructed Trauma Center. They can buy the medicines also from the shops that have been constructed in the underpass.
JDA has built 22 shops in the underpass. These shops are in demand among pharmacists due to their proximity to SMS Hospital. JDA first auctioned two of the 22 shops
. The bids surpassed the JDA’s expectations as the civic body collected more than 10 times the rates it was expecting from the auction, officials said.
