The roads are getting more jammed in north Delhi with several road and parking-related developmental projects are stuck due to trifurcation.
The North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) has been unable to expedite work in the past one month due to shortage of staff and the time taken to form the deliberative wing.
The people-friendly projects include nine road-under-bridge (RUBs) and five parking projects, including the one at Parade Ground and Chandni Chowk — which has already been inaugurated but is yet to be opened to the public. The parking project at Kamla Nagar market that was started four years back is also yet to be completed.
“The projects are stuck as there is shortage of staff. Officials are yet to take charge and there is the issue of finances as well,” said Mahender Nagpal, leader of the House of NDMC.
The NDMC House held its first meeting on Tuesday in which they decided to discuss ways to restart work on the projects. But due to sloganeering from the Opposition Congress, the House had to be dismissed.
The leaders have, however, asked the commissioner to compile a report and submit it in fifteen days. The report will include details of the projects along with the cost. It will also talk about its status and ways in which the projects can be completed.
“The trifurcation has brought with it many problems and now the projects are getting stuck. The RUBs located in various parts of the city were supposed to ease congestion but it has been delayed,” added Nagpal.
