Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government is planning to construct a Roadside Cafe Street in Agra, an official said on Wednesday. The street, spread over 7,120 square metres in Fatehabad would cost the government Rs 36 crore.
"It is being developed on the lines of world famous Roadside Cafe of Paris, and would be enabling all the domestic and foreign tourists to get the taste of almost all the dishes at a single place," the official of the Housing and Urban Planning Department told IANS.
The Cafe Street will have two restaurant blocks, a food court block, a pavilion block and two blocks for washrooms. The premises would be a double-storeyed structure and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016. The first instalment of Rs 30.10 crore has been released, the official informed.
