More than 51 residential colonies of the city will be given complete makeover with better roads, interlocking tiles and proper drainage.

Over 15 lakh people will avail benefits of these initiatives. The city administration has decided to take up 120 civic projects in areas including Gomtinagar, Indiranagar, Nishatganj, Chinhat, Mahanagar, Alambagh and Takrohi at a cost of Rs 34 crore.

Uttar Pradesh’s Urban Development Minister Suresh Khanna has laid the foundation stones of 98 proposed tasks. He also inaugurated 22 developmental projects.

The projects include construction of broken roads, inter-colony streets, bylanes connecting main stretches and roads surrounding colony parks in Virat Khand, Vineet Khand, Viram Khand, Vinay Khand, Papermill Colony, Ismailganj, Patelnagar and Sarvodaynagar, among others.

Colonies which have to deal with water-clogged roads will be provided new drains. The state government has also allocated funds for covering of drains at Raheemnagar, two places in Mahanagar, one in Papermill Colony, two in Gomtinagar and at 13 places in Indiranagar.

Roads at Ismailganj and Sarvodaya Colony will be widened.

The UP government has decided to start 89 projects including construction of footpaths and other road infrastructure under the Avasthapna Nidhi (infrastructure funds). The remaining projects will be financed under the 14th finance commission.
