Srinagar: The Srinagar Municipal Commission (SMC) has been working tirelessly to ensure that everything is in place for the upcoming G-20 summit whilst one of the major concerns being the road infrastructure leading to the venue which needs to be completed before the commencement of summit.
The SMC, under the aegis of Commissioner Athar Aamir Khan has assured of completion of the road project before April 15.
“The clock is ticking and the pressure is on for the SMC to deliver on their promise”, Athar Aamir Khan said adding as the construction workers continue to toil hard, the city is abuzz with anticipation for the G-20 summit.
“Those projects which are important as per the requirement of the G20 summit will be finished before April 15 and the already issued guidelines will be duly followed,” Khan as per GNS said.
“We are on our toes and our first priority is to finish the projects of Lal Chowk [the heart of the city] at an earliest. If the weather suits our target, it is fixed and we will complete the full project in due time,” Aamir said.
Talking about the recent scarcity of water supply in Srinagar city, Aamir said that such a situation arises when work is done on any road. “The damaged pipes will be replaced and the water supply will be fixed soon. Our site engineers and technicians are trying their level best not to damage any sort of pipeline, and if it happens, it will get replaced on priority.”
“As the Chief of the Smart City project, I would like to request everyone to have patience and give us some time”, he said. (GNS)
