To provide hassle-free commute to the residents of the national Capital, the Arvind Kejriwal Government has approved a fund of Rs 16.03 crore for redeveloping, strengthening and beautification of 12 roads across the city.
These roads include Marginal Bund Road, a key link between Noida and Delhi that caters to lakhs of commuters every day.
The major area of focus on this road is the stretch in front of Akshardham temple which includes two road over bridges (ROBs), roads connecting RoBs and three U-turns.
“The Public Works Department is continuously working towards road development projects across the city and this also includes maintenance of roads across the city ahead of monsoon season,” said a senior PWD official.
“For redevelopment and maintenance Rs 16.03 crores were approved for strengthening of 12 major roads by the Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. PWD is using modern technology to increase the strength of roads for the longer run,” said the official. “Ahead of the approval of the projects, a thorough inspection was taken up by the PWD officials to check the current conditions and requirements for strengthening of these roads,” said the official adding that the strengthening of this road will reduce the travel time of the commuters and make the travel easier.
Under various projects of PWD, the Kejriwal Government is working on a war footing to provide beautiful and safe roads to commuters of Delhi. For this, modern technologies are being used by PWD Delhi for the strengthening of roads.
It is noteworthy that the strengthening of these roads will not only decongest the traffic but will also save the time of the people and it will also be helpful in bringing down the pollution levels in the city.
