3 leisure valleys to come up in city
Three leisure valleys are coming up near DAV Public School (along Sidhwan Canal) in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, near Lodhi Club, and behind Block D and E in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar.
Accompanied by Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu, Ludhiana Improvement Trust Chairman Raman Balasubramaniam, MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal, MC councillor Maharaj Singh Raji, besides others, the minister inspected the
site and issued instructions to officials.
Ashu said the work orders of all these three projects had been issued and the work would start soon. He said the work related to construction of the leisure valley and the road and the installation of the iron mesh would be completed in the next six months.
He said he would personally monitor these projects and no lapse on any part would be tolerated.
He said the Haibowal area lacked projects such as leisure valley and that was why, a vacant chunk of land had been identified for developing it.
He said these projects would prove beneficial for area residents. The leisure valley would be constructed in a manner that it would have play areas for children, besides grounds and recreation areas for adults.
The minister also directed the MC officials to ensure that all encroachments on the sites to be used for these projects be cleared.
He said the new road along the Buddha Nullah would be joined with the existing road along the nullah and would be constructed till the MC limits and would prove beneficial for motorists. Even the iron mesh had been installed at some places, but now, the entire nullah would be covered.
