Education City’s DPR to complete in nine months
Feb 18 2013
The Detailed Project Report of the Bhutan Education City is expected to be complete in about nine months. The two Indian companies, which will construct the education city, IL&FS Township and Urban Assets Limited and Infinity, have hired a consultant to work on the report.
The study has already begun. The report will cover infrastructure development and architectural design of the city.
“Whenever an opportunity in the public-private partnership comes up, we go by the value that is involved in the project and its socio-economic factors are also taken into consideration not just the commercial.”

Once the report is complete, the education city will be built on over a thousand acres of government land at Wangsisina in Thimphu. The site is currently abuzz with the construction of an access road from the main highway towards the site. Construction of a bridge within the site has also begun.
The project is divided into two phases. The construction cost is expected to be between Nu.15-20 billion.
