Civic body to procure more plastic waste for constructing city roads

Updated on Sep 30, 2023 11:59 PM IST

The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) plans to use plastic waste in road construction. Tenders will be floated for outsourcing the work, and the roads will contain at least 8% plastic waste mixture. The use of plastic waste in road construction makes the roads more durable and prevents the formation of potholes. The MCG aims to reduce maintenance costs and increase the lifespan of the roads.

In December 2018, MCG had constructed its first-ever plastic road in the city, a 100-metre stretch in Sector 51. (HT Archive)
