The KMDA, which is intending to have a foot over bridge over the EM Bypass to the market, has made manicured yards and gardens on the banks of the water body where basic need shops and also Sulabh toilets would be arranged.


More than 200 vendors would be restored in the market, the officer said.  The idea cropped up during a visit to Thailand and seeing such coasting markets there.  The market won’t resemble those in Thailand and Indonesia, This will like the common markets . The main contrast will be that the shops will be on coasting vessels. The   market will be an added attraction for the sightseers to the city.
