The administration will likely install the ‘Srinagar Eye’ in the pattern of the famous ‘London Eye’ inside the world-famous Dal Lake in central Kashmir’s Srinagar district.

Sources told a local news agency, Kashmir News Observer (KNO), that like ‘The London Eye’, the admin is planning to construct “Srinagar Eye” with a giant “Ferris Wheel” inside the Dal Lake for the attraction of tourists to the Valley.

They said that a location has also been shortlisted for construction of the same and if this goes through, it could become a huge attraction for tourists and will be a major boost to the tourism sector as well in the Valley.

The London Eye, or the Millennium Wheel, is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe’s tallest cantilevered observation wheel and is the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom with over 3 million visitors annually.

When contacted, the director of J-K Lake Conservation and Management Authority, Bashir Ahmad Bhat told KNO that the project is at the Request for Proposal (R&P) stage and there are various factors to be considered before the project could be finalised.

He said that the proposal was made some time back. Still, they have to consider certain factors like environmental impact assessment, financial modeling and other things before it could be finalised.

Bhat also said that it will take time as environmental assessment is yet to be done. (KNO)
