New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday inspected the Chandani Chowk area and said that its historical glory will be restored after the redevelopment work and beautification plan.
Kejriwal inspected the project with Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain.
Talking to the media, Kejriwal said that the redevelopment project is expected to be completed by the first week of November. The work has been going on since December 2018.
The path from the Red Fort to Fatehpuri Masjid will be revamped with an estimated cost of Rs 90 crore. It will operate as a non-motorised vehicle street from 9 am to 9 pm.
The 1.3-km long road has been developed as a tourist spot. It has been developed in a way to facilitate walking on the street. Street lamps and benches will be installed on the stretch. All the wires will be made underground.
Kejriwal said, “We hope that the area will become a popular tourist destination and will attract tourists from around the globe. It was supposed to start in May but the process was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.”
