Arora said 90-percent work of ROB near Sherpur Chowk had already been completed and Tajpur flyover will be thrown open to the public in the first week of February.

The Rajya Sabha MP also asserted that road safety must be accorded the foremost priority and asked the officials to install proper traffic signage and remove all illegal cuts on the highways to save precious lives.

Further, he also appealed to the industrial houses to ensure their workers wear helmets and reflectors on their vehicles which will help to minimize road mishaps. He also asked the officials for speedy land acquisition on Delhi-Katra expressway and Ludhiana-Ropar four lane.

Deputy commissioner Surabhi Malik said the administration is firmly committed in ensuring safety and security of people besides facilitating them for smooth commuting on the roads.
