On Saturday the residents/passersby from Shukurwar Peth in Tilakwadi were in a double minds when they saw a surveyor surveying the road. When asked he replied that it was for the widening of the road. The road starting from Rotary Swimming pool to First gate would be widened.
Last year in July the plan was brought forward for the widening of the said road.
According to the CDP this road would be 60 feet wide, the current width of the road is 30 feet.
The Urban development ministry has approved a few packages under the CM’s 100 crore special grant II. The road would be widened under the same funds.
As there are many houses and buildings on the road which will need to be partly demolished, the residents and occupants are worried.
The corporation however denied that any survey was undertaken for road widening.
