Under the Smart City Project, preparations have started in full swing to implement the plan to develop Apsara Road, Gol Market and its surrounding areas in Gandhi Nagar. Under this, Jammu Smart City Limited officials held a meeting with the market association and local corporates of Apsara Road, Gol Market and its surrounding areas and informed them about the project. The office-bearers of the association and officers of various departments present in the meeting have said to give their full cooperation in this. It is estimated that about Rs 50 crore will be spent on this project.
During the meeting, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Jammu Smart City Limited, Hitesh Gupta, informed that a map had been prepared to develop Apsara Road, Gol Market and its surrounding areas. Within two years, this map will take its proper form. In this context, tenders have also been started from applicants who want to work on this project. Apsara Road will be the first area of the city to be developed under Smart City. Under this project, one-way traffic will be arranged from Apsara Road, while one lane will be entirely for pedestrians.
An entrance gate will be made from Gol Market to Apsara Road, from where vehicles will enter Apsara Road. Vehicles will not be allowed to go back to Gol Market from this road, while people will move on foot. At the same time, enough space will be kept between the lane of vehicles and the lane of pedestrians, where benches can be installed so that people can sit there and rest. To enhance the beauty of Apsara Road, under the Smart Light Project, bright lights will also be installed on the side of the road.
Ashwani Khullar, President of Apsara Road Market Association, said that in the meeting, Jammu Smart City Limited officials have declared that no shop would be demolished under the project. Nor will there be any restriction to the shopkeepers. There will be footpaths on both sides of the shops. Apart from this, drains will be constructed on both sides of the market. All the questions raised by him in the meeting have been answered satisfactorily. In such a situation, the association has decided to cooperate in this project.
Before developing any part of the city, it is necessary to cooperate with the people living there. Therefore a meeting has been held with all the people related to the area. All the people present in the meeting have assured their full cooperation. Hitesh Gupta, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Smart City Limited, Jammu
