New tourist attractions at Digha
West Bengal Chief Minister Ms Mamata Banerjee is going to unveil several new tourist attractions in Digha that would add to the appeal of this beach-town.
WB CM will inaugurate the new helipad at Digha which will facilitate chopper rides from Kolkata to Digha. She will also launch a ropeway for tourists at Amarabati Park in Digha.
The ropeway will move along the Lake in Amarabati Park. The length of the ropeway has been estimated to be of 150 to 200 meters and tourists will also be able to get a larger view of Digha from the ropeway.
The Government is in touch with the coastal zone authorities to work out the modalities of the bigger ropeway project, which will move over the beach between Old and New Digha.
Following Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s instructions, the state government has been working to develop the coastal areas of Digha, Shankarpur, Tajpur and Mandarmani as attractive tourist destinations. The Digha-Shankarpur Development Authority (DSDA) was working at sprucing up the overall civic infrastructure of the area like setting up roads, keeping the beaches clean, revamping the drainage system and having a solid waste management programme in place. A beautification programme was also undertaken.
