The Dehradun Smart City Limited (DSCL) resumed work on its projects on Friday after receiving the go-ahead from chief minister Trivendra Rawat. Renovation work at Paltan Bazaar will be the first project to be taken up, followed by others in a phased manner, said officials.
Talking to TOI, DSCL chief executive officer Ashish Srivastava said, “Smart city projects have been resumed with the aim of completing them within the targeted time. We will monitor the projects regularly to ensure the work is done efficiently.”
DSCL officials also said that locally available labourers and those workers staying at relief camps will be deployed for the smart city projects, as interstate movement is restricted for now, due to the extended nationwide lockdown.
Surya Kotnala, assistant general manager, Dehradun Smart City Limited, said, “In the interest of residents, the smart city projects will take place between 1 pm and 7 am, for maximum utilization of time.” This has been done to allow a free access to residents, who are allowed to step out from 7 am to 1 pm to buy essential household items.
The project of smart roads is being built with an estimated budget of Rs 22 crore. The roads will have facilities like LED street lamps, ducts dedicated for placing underground telephone and electricity cables. The makeover work at Paltan Bazaar will include a pedestrian path, uniform signboards for all shops as well as golf carts to ferry senior citizen, disabled persons and pregnant women.
