The Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) administrator, Praveen Kumar, at a meeting with the divisional engineers on Tuesday, admitted that poor signboards on the city roads are a major concern for commuters and issued an order to put the same at the earliest.
"Each master road and NH-8 must be marked with proper signboards, and the same be planned for arterial roads of sectors," ordered Kumar while giving this responsibility to Hari Dutt Sharma, executive engineer, division-VI.
While asking the engineers to act fast and prepare a report on design and expenditure, the administrator also made it clear to keep uniformity in signboards. Kumar also advised engineers to consult their Delhi-based counterparts and town planners to develop good and visible boards.
"If one wants to go to Sector 56 from Iffco Chowk (NH-8), the Huda signboard should act as a guide for him. All entry and exit gates should have proper boards," added the administrator.
He said that the sign board is important as it helps commuters and visitors reach their destinations without trouble.
"We appreciate the gesture made by Huda. However, the department should have taken the step much earlier. All master roads, sector roads and the Expressway lack this aspect causing trouble to commuters and visitors," said SK Srivastav, a South City-II resident.
