8 Roads in Janakpuri to be revamped by PWD

New Delhi: Manish Sisodia, the deputy chief minister of Delhi, has given the go-ahead for 17 road improvements in West Delhi, according to a statement released last week.

According to the statement, these projects will cover a total of 12.83 km of roadways in the Tilak Nagar, Vikaspuri, and Janakpuri neighbourhoods.

Sisodia said ₹13.58 crore has been approved for revamping 17 roads in the national capital. Sisodia, who also holds charge of the Public Works Department (PWD), directed officials to complete the work in the stipulated time.

“The PWD has expedited the work of road strengthening and beautification across the city. The department is using modern technologies and global standards of street design to give a new look to the city roads."

"Along with road strengthening and maintenance, the special focus of the department is on beautifying the prominent city roads to provide a pleasant commuting experience to commuters," he said.

PWD officials had carried out a thorough inspection of roads to assess their requirements. Following this, the projects were prepared and approved by the government, the statement said.

The PWD is putting an emphasis on road markings, plantations, etc. in addition to making the roads durable.

Sisodia said the PWD is working in a phased manner to make the city roads better.

During the inspections in these areas, it was found that the residents had to face a lot of inconvenience due to the old dilapidated roads, he said.

"Taking cognisance of the situation, a new road maintenance project is being started in these areas to avoid any inconvenience to the common public. This will improve the interconnectivity in the area and save time for commuters," he added.

The minister said the government is determined to provide a hassle-free commuting experience to the residents of Delhi and is following the global standards of street design to make the city roads better and safer.

Earlier last week, Sisodia went on a surprise inspection at ITO and checked details such as road markings, lifts for the skywalk near the Tilak bridge, and cleanliness at the foot-over bridge. On finding various irregularities, he pulled up the officials concerned. If any road in the city is found to be neglected and unmaintained, strict action will be taken against officials, the minister had said.
