Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Public Works Department (PWD) Minister Satyendar Jain on Tuesday visited the road stretch redeveloped along ‘European standards’ in Chirag Delhi.
The stretch has been developed by the PWD based on European parameters of public space design and both Mr. Jain and Mr. Sisodia inspected the entire stretch in addition to discussing the project work and issuing important directions related to the replication of similar redevelopment around Delhi.
“Delhi will soon have beautiful roads of European standards. With our work commitment and dedication we will change the face of the national capital,” Mr. Jain said.
“This beautiful stretch will now serve as an example which will be replicated across Delhi. High quality, beautiful roads, and public spaces are the essences of a world-class city,” Mr. Sisodia said.
