Gurgaon journey no longer bumpy; crores spent on improving road conditions
Weeks after a report by Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) said that Gurgaon with 260 deaths accounted for maximum number of fatalities in the past one year in the state, Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has earmarked more than Rs 50 crores to give better look to MG Road and Sohna road.
EVEN THOUGH HUDA administrator, Praveen Kumar, who assumed charge of the development body last year, has not been able to achieve what he had claimed from the day one in office, but the city has certainly witnessed development on various fronts.
The credit goes to Kumar of course, as he has been working relentlessly to change the city for good. A look at the interior roads in the city, which were potholed have changed for better - the credit again goes to Kumar. Not only this, Kumar in coordination with the local police has effectively removed various bottlenecks in the form of roundabouts etc.
According to the Times of India, Rs 21 crore have been deposited by HUDA with the Public works Department (PWD) for the work on MG Road and Rs 46 crore will be spent on the development of Sohna Road. Since the deadline for both the works is just three months away, so Kumar claims that both the roads will don a better look within next three months.
Not only has the road condition in the city improved during past one year, streetlights have been installed at various intersections, which wore a dark look immediately after the sunset. An example is the major road linking the Golf Course Road to the Guru Dronacharya Metro Station. Not only was the road dilapidated, but there were no streetlights earlier, but not anymore.
