Delhi govt allocates Rs 39 crore for maintenance of roads in north, south Delhi

The Delhi government on Wednesday has approved projects worth Rs 39.16 crore to enhance the aesthetic appeal of two major road stretches in the city.

The Public Works Department Minister, Atishi said that the government is working towards strengthening the city’s roads and getting them assessed by experts to create a blueprint for their improvement.

She said that the projects aim to improve the Andheria Mor to NH-48 stretch on Mehrauli-Mahipalpur Road and the Shaheed Captain Vikram Batra flyover to Burari flyover stretch on Outer Ring Road in north Delhi.

The initiative is part of the Delhi government’s efforts to create safe, beautiful, and world-class roads in the city under the leadership of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, she added

The Delhi government has directed officials to follow global standards of street design and ensure compliance with all safety and security measures during the maintenance work.

The two city roads have suffered from a deterioration in their quality, causing difficulties for commuters. An assessment of these roads has been conducted by IIT-Roorkee, said Atishi.

The beautification work will involve maintenance and upkeep of pavements, central verges, and service lanes of the entire road stretch, lane marking, white-washing of parapet walls, painting of kerbstones/railings, plantation on central verges and roadside, and maintenance of street-lights, she said.

The Delhi government is undertaking the project in a phased manner to ensure the success of this important initiative. ( With inputs from PTI)
