Tanks shall be properly maintained by periodic de-silting. Small Islands as like Ukkadam lake shall be created in other tanks as well in order to grow trees & attract birds.

Public Transport Shall be improved by means of
- Enough number of buses at the peak hours
- Buses with different sizes & capacity suitable for the road. The wide body JNNURM buses cause traffic congestion in the narrow roads of Coimbatore e.g. Athipalayam road which is mainly used by college/office goers in Saravanampatty & Keeranatham.
- Local Trains shall be introduced using the existing tracks on Mettupalayam, Pollachi, Tirupur lines. Monorail/Metro rail shall be planned.

There are lots of stray dogs in most of the areas.they should be given proper shelter. People tend to dispose waste along the roadside due to the lack of garbage bins in each street. trees should be planted along the roads. waste disposal should be differentiated into biodegradable and non-biodegradable as people tend to dispose everything together.parking along the roads should be well organised. Trichy road and vilankurichi road should be improved. All the buses should have regular timings.

For coimbatore to be a smart city, its bare necessities should be fulfilled. the roads are to be improvised. The cut roads are horrible all over the city which can cause accidents. the main reason for traffic is due to various vehicles on the road. This can be controlled by providing separate lanes for cycles, bikes, cars and buses. Pedestrians and cyclists have a really tough time on the roads now. Cleanliness should be improved across the city. Waste disposal methods should be made strict.
