 Ludhiana: Punjab Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Minister Bharat Bhushan Ashu today informed that in a bid to provide clean and green environment, place for exercise and spending leisure time for the residents of Haibowal area, a leisure valley on 7 acres of land would be constructed by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust. Besides, a road along the Budha Nullah with a cost of Rs 84 lakh and iron mesh with the cost of Rs 13 crore would also be installed.

Accompanied by Mayor Balkar Singh Sandhu, Ludhiana Improvement Trust Chairman Raman Balasubramaniam, MC Commissioner Pardeep Kumar Sabharwal, MC Councillor Maharaj Singh Raji, besides several others, Bharat Bhushan Ashu inspected the site and issued necessary instructions to the officials.

Bharat Bhushan Ashu informed that the work orders of all these three projects have been issued and the work would start soon. He said that the work related to construction of leisure valley and road and installation of iron mesh would be completed within next six months. He informed that he would personally monitor these projects and no lapse on any part would be tolerated.

He informed that the Haibowal area lacked projects such as leisure valley and that is why, a vacant chunk of land has been identified for developing it. He said that these projects would prove very beneficial for the area residents. He informed that the leisure valley would be constructed in a manner that it would have play areas for children, besides grounds and recreation areas for adults.

Ashu also directed the MC officials to ensure that all encroachments on the sites to be used for these projects would also be cleared.

He said that the new road along the Budha Nullah would be joined with the existing road along the Nullah and would be constructed till the MC limits and would prove very beneficial for motorists. He said that even the iron mesh has been installed at some places, but now, entire nullah would be covered.

It is pertinent to mention that three leisure valleys are coming up near DAV Public School (along Sidhwan Canal) in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, near Lodhi Club and behind Blocks D & E in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar.
