On January 20, three long-pending projects of the city will be opened for the residents of Pink City. The three are Ghat Ki Guni tunnel, Ramniwas Bagh parking and the underpass at Gujjat Ki Thadi. An announcement to this effect was made by minister for urban development and housing Shanti Dhariwal during his visit to Ghat Ki Guni tunnel and Ramniwas Bagh parking project on Tuesday.

With the announcement, the JDA will have to work round-the-clock to complete the remaining work of Ghat ki Guni tunnel and Ramniwas Bagh parking till middle of this month as the Ashok Gehlot government intends to get projects inaugurated by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and other leaders including the prime minister, who will be visiting the state during the Chintan Shivir.

JDA commissioner Kuldeep Ranka assured that the tunnel project will be completed by January 15 while the deadline for Ramniwas Bagh parking project will be January 16. The Gujjar Ki Thadi underpass project, which was completed since long, will also be inaugurated this month.

During the visit, the minister also directed the officials to prepare a proposal and send it to the chief minister to seek approval for location where the inauguration ceremony for the tunnel project will be held. The officials have proposed three locations near the tunnel namely, Jawahar Nagar bypass (entry point of tunnel) open land near leprosy hospital on Agra Road and near the flyover on Agra Road.

Meanwhile, JDA sources claim that it will be a big challenge for the officials to complete the project by the set date as work on the entry and exit points of the tunnel is still pending. “The work to widen the road at Jawahar Nagar end is slow. The complete construction work including the rotary can only be done after that,” said an official.

Recently, many houses on either side of Transport Nagar flyover were razed to widen the roads. The JDA’s official version however remains that the project can be completed well in time. Officials said that the work inside the tunnel is complete and only construction of the proposed rotary and widening of road is left. The miscellaneous work including painting and plantation will be done within five days.

“Currently, the road near Jawahar Nagar bypass end along the flyover is 7.5 metre wide. To avoid congestion, the width of the road will be increased by another 30 metres. The construction work can be completed if extra manpower is deputed,” said the official.
