All-clear for last stretch work on 2nd road link to New Chandigarh

Chandigarh: Decks have been cleared for the construction of the last stretch of the PR4-Dakshin Marg road that will improve connectivity between Chandigarh and New Chandigarh (Mullanpur), Mohali. Currently, New Chandigarh has only one direct link from the city — the road from Madhya Marg. Clearance has been given to the UT engineering department to construct the road on the Chandigarh Armed Police (CAP), Dhanas, side for joining PR4 road with Dakshin Marg. Even though the UT engineering department has completed a major chunk of the road from the Punjab border to Chandigarh near Dakshin Marg, the completion was delayed because of the road alignment issues and design of the junction. The road has been proposed to be 200ft wide, according to the Chandigarh Master Plan (CMP-2031). In addition to the main carriageway, it will also include green verge, cycle track, slow carriageway and pedestrian path with tabletop. However, after a survey of the site, it was found that certain structures in CAP were falling in the alignment of right of way (RoW) of the road. The boundary wall of the CAP complex abuts the proposed widening plan for this road. The UT engineering department started the carpeting work on the road in May. The work on the 1.5 km stretch, pending since 2019, had got delayed due to legal issues. Some local residents in 2019 challenged the Social Impact Assessment Report and obtained status quo order on October 5, 2020, from the Punjab and Haryana high court.

The Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) has been slow in procuring streetlights and has not renewed maintenance contracts, resulting in non-functional lights in over 1,300 locations. Residents complain of having to walk in darkness, with some resorting to using flashlights. Experts emphasize the need for proper lighting to enhance safety and suggest measures such as spacing lights appropriately and installing pavement lights. GCC has identified 152 dark spots in the city but claims to be working on addressing the issue.105273954
