Yesterday the residents of Club Road got a shock when they saw a few jeeps with “G” registration stopping in front of their premises with some tape and trying to measure the road.
These were the people from the corporation who were marking the road to be widened to 120 feet as per the 1994 CDP (city development plan).
The club road now is more of a commercial road with hotels, banks, hospitals and a few residential houses including the one of a former MLA.
On the other side there is the district hospital and other government offices.
Yesterday marking was done from Hotel Milan to Harsha corner.
The said road falls under the purview of the PWD but the corporation is taking the road widening.
If this road is made 120 feet many house will have to face the JCB and even the compound wall of the former MLA will face the hit.
There are a few big and old remaining trees on the road which will also breathe their last.
The RPD to Vadgaon road widening work is still not complete. Phule road is also not completed 100% and same is the case with Angol road. But the latter fall into Belgaum South and this one falls in Belgaum north.
