HUDA to spend Rs 1,525 cr on urban infrastructure
Chandigarh, Sep 10 (UNI) The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) has decided to implement an action plan of Rs 1,525 crore during the next three years for improving the urban infrastructure in urban estates of 17 towns of the state.
While informing this, a spokesman of HUDA said under this action programme an amount of Rs 776 crore for Gurgaon, Rs 160 crore for Faridabad, Rs 100 crore for Rohtak, Rs 60 crore for Panipat, Rs 121 crore for Panchkula, Rs 22 crore for Ambala, Rs 60 crore for Kurukshetra, Rs 130 crore for Sonepat, Rs 21 crore for Kaithal, Rs 18 crore for Karnal, Rs 12 crore for Yamunanagar, Rs 33 crore for Bahadurgarh, Rs four crore for Rewari, Rs 17 crore for Bhiwani, Rs four crore for Fatehabad, Rs five crore for Sirsa and Rs 27 crore for Hisar had been earmarked.
He said HUDA had recently made a significant intervention by improving the norms of community and public services.
A banquet hall instead of a community centre would be provided in the urban estates to meet the changed requirements of the public, he added.
In addition, the locations of institutional areas had been streamlined and rationalised by locating these on major sector roads to allow easy access to the public and avoid congestions, he said.
The spokesman said that for avoiding merger of city traffic with that of national highway in the new planned sectors, wider service lanes were being provided along the national highway and steps like corrective planning of old sectors had been initiated which would go a long way in improving the urban civic infrastructure.
