After the administration allowed construction activities on stalled projects, the municipal corporation (MC) has commenced the repair work of roads in the city on Thursday.
The National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) has also started the work on NH-44 flyover near Mohan Dai Oswal Cancer Hospital, Ferozepur road elevated project and Laddowal bypass. The works, however, could not be carried out at full capacity due to the conditions imposed by the authorities in the wake of the lockdown.
The Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) has also got approval for taking up seven development projects.
The MC has been drawing flak over the pathetic condition of the roads in the city and the residents have been demanding that the civic body should take up the repair work.
MC superintending engineer HS Bhullar confirmed that the work to repair the city roads has commenced. The MC will first repair the main roads and then the internal roads will be patched, he said.
