The Mumbai Metropolitan Road Development Authority (MMRDA) has launched tenders for works on six major roads in the jurisdiction of Ulhasnagar Municipal Corporation (UMC), with a fund of Rs 1.5 billion.
The UMC administration is in full preparation to make all roads in Ulhasnagar cement-concrete. At present, more than 60% of the city’s roads are cement concrete.
According to Ashok Naikwade, Deputy Commissioner of UMC, “The Suvarna Jayanti Urban Development Program has provided Rs 2.43 billion to UMC. If the project is approved, Ulhasnagar’s roads will be in good condition.”
“Each year the civic body of Ulhasnagar spends millions of rupees on repairing roads and filling potholes. Road construction can save millions of rupees in road expenses,” said Aziz Shaikh , commissioner of the UMC.
The civic leader said the civic body is trying to complete the city’s development work on time, with the majority of the work being completed before the new year.
