The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon’s initiative to introduce grid-based numbering system for roads has got a cold response from residents.

Despite advertisements in newspapers earlier this month to invite suggestions, the authority hasn’t received even a single response.

“Advertisements were published in four newspapers but we haven’t received a single feedback. Residents were given 10 days to respond,” said an MCG official. He added that the MCG chief engineer will soon chalk out the final plan to execute the project.

The proposal had got an in-principle approval by the MCG on November 21.

MCG councillor Nisha Singh, who had moved the proposal in a house meeting, said, “The project is pretty much on track though the advertisements have not drawn any feedback.”

Kishore Asthana, a resident who is working on the project with Singh, also expressed hope that the project will soon be in place. “No suggestions from residents means work will move faster as we don’t have to incorporate suggestions,” he said.

About 36 major intersections have been identified for the first phase of the project.

While roads in the east to west direction will be given a number, the ones running from north to south will be identified with an alphabet.
