Lucknow readies to say good-bye to overhead wires,  beautification begins at Ashok Marg

Soon no overhead wires will mar the stunning cityscape of Lucknow

Grand, old, charming, and beautiful, these words define what every Lucknowite thinks of their beloved city. Famous for its architectural magnificence, the stunning buildings, the old-world charm and everything that is traditional and grand, Lucknow is also a city that has been plagued by modernisation. The beautiful vistas of the city can be seen marred by a jumble of overhead wires that seem to be coming from everywhere and going everywhere. These wires are not only annoying but also a serious hazard waiting to happen.

If like us, you too have been irked by the looming overhead wires, we have some good news. Lucknow may soon get rid of the overhanging tangled mess as beautification and overhead wire removal begins at Ashok Marg.

What's the update?

On Sunday evening, the residents of Lucknow saw a sight they had been long waiting for- a team from the city's civic body clearing a major chunk of hanging overhead wires at Ashok Marg. Unkempt and bundled wires were being removed from the busy road that serves as a connection between Atal Chowk (previously Hazratganj Chauraha) and Sikandar Bagh.

The stretch of road is expected to become an 'Overhead Wire Free Zone' within a week. The removal work comes under the Lucknow Beautification project and is expected to be implemented at other prominent areas in the city as well.

Ahead of the Defence Expo, removal of these wires will help beautify the road in Lucknow.

Lucknow is most famously known as the city of Nawabs. The name, though many think is given to the city because it was ruled by the Nawabs for many years, is more so because of the impact the Nawabs had on Lucknow's culture and its common life.
