The municipal corporation (MC) will spend Rs 12.13 crore on the project to beautify the main points of the industrial city. The civic body has designed special structures for the purpose.
These structures will be installed at the entry points, including Jalandhar byepass chowk, Sherpur Chowk, Gill Chowk and Samrala Chowk.
The department has finalised four structures which have been prepared by an architect and the installation will begin shortly. The beautification plan was jointly discussed by the municipal corporation commissioner Ghanshyam Thori and mayor Harcharan Singh Gohalwaria. The mayor gave anticipation approval to the project work.
Along with installation of these structures special plantation drive will also be conducted by the horticulture wing during monsoon season. The civic body is likely to spend Rs 12.13 crore on the entire project.
