Jalandhar, August 14

Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary today inaugurated the underpass at the railway level crossing C-4 in Surya Enclave. He was accompanied by Jalandhar Central MLA Rajinder Beri and Mayor Jagdish Raj Raja.

This subway, having a width of 5.5 metres and height of 3.6 metres and suitable for low height vehicles, has been constructed at a cost of Rs 2.10 crore.

Speaking to the media after inaugurating the under bridge, MP Chaudhary said it was a long standing demand of the local people to have an underbridge at the crossing C-4 since due to regular closing of gates to let the trains pass leads to heavy traffic congestion in the area. He said this railway underbridge would provide relief to the people of Surya Enclave, Bashirpura, Guru Gobind Singh Avenue, Kamal Vihar, Chogitti, Bharat Nagar and other areas.

The Lok Sabha MP stated that two deep wells also have been constructed with rain harvesting systems to drain storm/rainwater. Municipal councillors Manmohan Singh Raju, Shelly Khanna and Manu Birring, and Surinder Singh Bhapa were among those present on the occasion.
