PMC Road Department on Thursday send a 100-crore funding request to the additional chief secretary of finance (planning) department for the project.

Nikhil Mijar, PMC traffic planner, said, “The civic body has prioritised connecting roads blocked by distances of 1-100 metres, 100-500, 500-1,000 and onwards. In the first phase, 33 missing links will be connected. So far, 14 links have been acquired, three connected, and work on the remaining links is ongoing. At present, we plan to work on five major missing links and have sought 100 crore for land acquisition as most owners have demanded cash compensation.”
