Ludhiana: Beautification work around Statue Park at the Jagraon missed deadline as it was expected to complete by the end of January by Municipal Corporation Ludhiana in association with the district administration. For this project, the immediate meeting was also called on January 3 at the site only by Additional Municipal Corporation Commissioner, Ludhiana, Surabhi Malik, Additional Deputy Commissioner of the Police (Traffic), Dhruv Dhiya and number of other officials including the engineer visited the Jagraon Bridge in order to finalise certain changes to start the work on January 3 evening, but the work on this site did not start till date.
It is pertinent to mention that under this project the Jagroan Bridge statues and area around it would be beautified, zebra crossings for pedestrians after completion of bridge so that in heavy traffic, pedestrians may also get able to cross the roads and other minute changes about Jagraon Bridge. About visit on Jagraon Bridge, Surabhi Malik at that time said that administration officials want to enhance beautification of statue on Jagraon Bridge and they have been allotted funds for it also in 2014 so they paid visit. “I thought, that why not issues related with traffic such as making of Zebra crossing and making certain other changes would also be discussed in single meeting only,” she told.
Malik further informed, “That is why she called ADCP Traffic, administration officials with the engineers on the spot so that afterwards traffic police have no objections to changes in order to control the traffic” she further informed. She added that when all the officials are on one floor then minute issues which rise afterwards get sorted out on the spot only. So, they have been given green signal to beautify the place by walking on guidelines of the traffic police.” Now, when Surabhi Malik was asked about the delay in work, she said that it was postponed due to the elections, now its work would start soon at the site.
