Rourkela Still Plant (RSP) by SAIL is heart of Odisha. Not only it pumps money into city, but also is responsible for its social development. One key development among many is "The ring road", encircling the city. Four lane wider, 23 kilo-meters long road is laid to connect almost all 19 sectors of planned new Rourkela city and old Rourkela. It is maintained and decorated by RSP, as a social initiative. The divider gardens, lush green plantation on both sides of roads, broad side-walks of ring road keeps city traffic in order and makes commutation trouble free.
RSP architectures has creatively decorated the crossroads by raising aptly carved and suggestive sculptors made of steel. The new series "Sculpture at Intersection" is about such monuments that marks the city map of Rourkela.
It symbolises the success Indian steel industry has achieved after 50 years of independence. This growth is represented by a mature bird ready to fly in all four directions. "The bird" is committed to touch the extreme limits of development and excellence in the field.
Sculpture was inaugurated by Mr. A K Singh (Then director Rourkela Steel plant, 2nd October 1997)
