49 roads in Lucknow's Indira Nagar & Vikas Nagar to be repaired & restored!

The authorities have already rolled out a budget of ₹15 crores for the mending of 10 roads under this program.

In a move to ensure easier and comfortable commute for the city folks, Public Works Department in Lucknow, will undertake restoration and beautification activities along 49 roads of Indira Nagar and Vikas Nagar. Slated for a start in the next 15 to 20 days, this project entails umpteen benefits for thousands of regular travellers. As per the available information, the authorities have already rolled out a budget of ₹15 crores for the repair and mending of 10 roads under this program.

Budget for the 39 other roads to be released soon

In the year 2018, Lucknow Municipal Corporation had proposed to hand over 126 roads to the Public Works Department. Since PWD did not have enough funds to take up this responsibility, the plans could not be materialised then. Now, the department has taken over the complete maintenance of 49 roads. PWD engineer, Manish Verma, informed that planned interventions for 10 of these roads will be executed in the next 2 to 3 weeks while the budget for the other roads will be released soon.
