The residents of South City-2 have a reason to rejoice as the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) will soon initiate the development work in the colony.
The department of urban local bodies (ULB) has given the cost approval. Around Rs. 8 crores will be spent on works which include road recarpeting, upgradation of water pipelines, storm water drain, sewer line, repair of pavement construction etc.
Today, Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar laid the foundation stone of the work.
Gopal Kalwat, Executive Engineer, MCG said, "The tender rates have been already approved and we will start the upgradation work by next week in South City-2. The infrastructural development work will be completed in nearly 6 months.”
Overflowing sewers, pothole riddled roads, choked drainage, rusted water lines are some of the problems faced by the residents for a long time. They informed that since the inception of the colony in 2006, no single road was recarpeted by the developer. Residents are concerned over lack of basic facilities provided to them by the developer in the colony.
The residents are looking forward to the development and said that they are now hopeful that situation might change for good. However, they are little cautious about its timely execution and said that the state election date will be announced in few weeks. SN Bhardwaj, President, South City-2 RWA said, "We welcome the move as it is our long pending demand. If the civic authority recarpets the colony roads by the time elections are announced then it will surely ease residents' problem. But if the work is not completed by that time than it will cause inconvenience to the residents."
