In the national capital city, PWD i.e the Public Works Department is soon going to commence work on road restoration and this will cover road length of 1,260 km.
A total of 50 MLA and 50 engineers will work as a part of the road restoration project and they will be responsible to figure out potholes, uneven roads and broken barriers in their constituencies. The ratio of one MLA one engineer will cover a road measuring upto 25 kms. The teams will also examine the carriageways and will have to prepare reports on same basis at the earliest.
The restoration work will begin as soon as the reports are submitted to the Public Work department.
This work will be carried out in a phased manner and in the first round restoration will take place in the localities such as Najafgarh, Hari Nagar, Mayur Vihar, Sangam Vihar, Sant Nagar, Paschim Vihar, GTB Nagar and Indraprastha Estate.
According to the sources, the restoration work is most likely to begin from mid-October.
The road in Ghata Masjid Road, Azad Bhawan Road, Raj Niwas Marg, Salimgarh Bypass Road and the stretches between the Indraprastha Flyover, Mangi Bridge, Burari Mor and Amrit Vihar will be revamped for the first time since they are built.
However, some roads that are built a couple of years ago in the areas like Avtaar Singh Marg, BBM Road, Bhamashah Road and Jahanara Road are required to be redeveloped. The roads here either have potholes or broken dividers and this causes accidents at time and again.
Recently, the State Government has announced road restoration work to be carried by the PWD department.
Better roads are not need of residents only but the uneven roads also temper the city’s image in the mind of tourists visiting the national capital city.
