There are many face-lifting and upgradation plans for the areas which lie in the radius of two kilometers from all of 2010 Commonwealth Games Venues like installation of phone booths , information kiosks and touch screens for the tourists visiting the capital on the occasion of commonwealth games . These facilities will help them in guiding and informational purposes and will enhance their experience of the country.

The capital is expecting millions of foreign visitors along with hoards of domestic visitors during commonwealth games in 2010. Keeping the same in mind the government is planning to beautify all the 12 venues of the games, which can screen a positive effect on the visitors. Touch-screens, information kiosks, food stalls and public conveniences such as phone booths, help desks and benches to rest will come up in the area.

Besides this, rainwater harvesting and planting of trees will also be done, along with putting up benches and energy saving street-lights.

The responsibility of developing roads around the stadium has been given to different agencies such as Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and Delhi Development Authority (DDA).

The agencies are doing there work well, in addition to this New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) has appointed two consultants and floated a tender for its two venues Sardar Patel Marg Swimming Complex and Talkatora Stadium. Meanwhile Public Works Department (PWD) has selected consultants for Yamuna Sports Stadium and IG Stadium

The PWD will be selecting consultants for the remaining eight venues as well. Once the consultants are appointed and submit the blueprint, the firms will be selected on the basis of tenders to execute the work on the BOT (Built Operate and Transfer) basis.

To ensure that the beautification around the Games venues is synchronized and adheres to its specification, Commonwealth Games Organizing Committee will be kept in loop and coordinate with MCD, DDA and the NDMC.

The Committee will also facilitate efficient crowd movement and management around the venues. Some of the events included in the 2010 Commonwealth Games are aquatics, gymnastics, rugby, athletics, bowling table tennis, boxing, cycling, hockey, badminton, shooting, squash, netball, and weightlifting.
