As many as 45 groups, each comprising eight students, from three colleges fanned out to cover the city.
They talked to pedestrians and commuters belonging to a cross-section of the society and recorded their suggestions.
It would also cover roadside shades with weather protection and pedestrian amenities. The project has to be completed by end of October,” said Mohapatra.
