Rajiv Chowk and South City II witness road carpeting.
To usher in Diwali, different parts of Gurgaon are witnessing road carpeting. Rajiv Chowk and South City II were the first ones to witness the makeover.
Haryana Day is on November 1 and celebrations will be held at Tau Devi Lal Stadium. The road on this stretch, known as Bakhtawar Chowk, has huge potholes and is broken at various places. The authorities have now taken the initiative to repair the badly damaged one-kilometre stretch.
The roads of South City II were the next focus.
At a recent meeting with concillors, Rao Narbir Singh, Haryana public works department minister, had assured residents of speedy action and granted Rs 4 lakh for repair work from his MLA funds.
The five-year-old wait for residents finally came to an end.
“We will start work as soon as receive the orders. Cost assessment has already been done by us,” confirmed Gaurav Antil, joint commissioner, Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon.
“We are happy that at least the worst road of our area will finally be repaired,” said Nilesh Tandon, President RWA Fresco.
