Srinagar, Apr 12:The CEO of Smart City announced on Wednesday that several projects are in their final stages, with the clock tower project set to be completed in the coming days. The machine work in the city center is now complete, and the team is focusing on executing the hand work, which is taking a little time but will result in a beautiful and long-lasting finished locality.
The Polo View project is also almost complete, with only a few more days of work remaining. The CEO expressed gratitude to the shopkeepers for their cooperation throughout the city. SMC Commissioner Athar Amir Khan stated that the residency road footpaths are almost completed, with blacktopping scheduled to be done in the coming days.
He added that the MA Road, Polo View, Left Bank, Gufkar Junction, and Illumination of 15 Buildings projects are almost at the final stage, and the new look that Polo View is getting is particularly exciting to see. The shopkeepers in Lal Chowk have been actively involved in the projects and have given suggestions, which the commissioner is always happy to hear.
The pace of work on other projects is also expedited, and the macadamization process on the MA Road stretch is expected to start soon. For the River Front, MA Road, and Abdullah Bridge Stretch, the actual timeline was 2024, but the timeline was squeezed and some prioritized projects will be completed in April only.
The Lal Chowk project is also at its final stage, and in the coming few days, the work will be completed, giving a new look to the heart of the city. The CEO urged everyone to do their part in beautifying the city, such as decorating walls around their homes with positive stories or uplifting artwork.
Regarding ongoing work, the shopkeepers in Lal Chowk are in touch with the team and will eventually give suggestions. The CEO expects that by the middle of next month, all important roads, including vital city roads with blacktop, will be completed. He expressed gratitude to the people of the city for their full cooperation.
