The city of Ranchi has joined hands with Italy’s Reggio Emilia city for knowledge sharing on sustainable urban development programme. Recently, a delegation from the Italian city visited Ranchi Municipal Corporation and Ranchi smart city site to understand the various facilities such as command control centre and integrated infrastructure. The discussion focused on mobility, improving civic infrastructure, facilitating online public and civic amenities etc.
The delegation also reviewed the chartered bicycle project of the state urban development department. Italy has done good work encouraging cycling. RMC has also been initiating projects to provide better commuting experience and facilities to the people. The discussion included designing safe bicycle routes in the City to promote non-motorised transport to enhance public mobility. The Italian delegation visit is part of the European Union International Urban and Regional Cooperation Programme for sustainable urban development.
