Notably, JDA has identified 26 roads for which over 25 tenders have been invited. The project will be completed in a phased manner. In phase-I, MI Road and C-Scheme have been selected among other areas to get repaired road. The civic body plans to complete the repair work of all the roads before the monsoon season.
According to a JDA official, the civic body was already working on renovating and strengthening roads in the outer area of Jaipur and has now moved into the core city after receiving directions from the state government. Repair work in the Walled City area will be conducted by the Heritage Corporation while the responsibility of roads repairs with a width of 60 feet and above is given to the Jaipur Municipal Corporation.
