About Frontier Mediville
Frontier Mediville is a 350 acre medical village including an SEZ, on the NH 5 near Gummidipundi, a joint venture with TIDCO. It is a completely green project with a rural background, with proper energy utilization and waste management. Due emphasis on research and basic sciences would be given to focus on a world class medical science park. As has been brought out earlier, a 1000 bedded bio-hospital, a medical university, a herbarium, a research facility and a world class convention hall are planned here. These facilities will require the best available communications world wide in order to meet the growing dependence on the world wide web and telecommunications. No communication towers are planned in Mediville in order to preserve the ecological balance.
