Ludhiana, November 3:
To provide clean and green environment, place for exercise and spending leisure time for city residents, four Leisure Valleys will be developed in Ludhiana (West) constituency of the city. Punjab Food, Civil Supplies & Consumer Affairs Minister Punjab Mr Bharat Bhushan Ashu informed that the work on four leisure valleys is going on in full swing.
These four leisure valleys are coming up near DAV Public School (along Sidhwan Canal) in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar, in Haibowal, near Lodhi Club and behind Blocks D & E in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar.
Accompanied by Ludhiana Improvement Trust Chairman Mr Raman Balasubramanian, Mr Ashu today visited two under construction leisure valleys (near DAV Public School and near Lodhi Club) and inspected the ongoing work there and issued necessary directions to concerned officials. He said that these projects would prove as lifelines for the city and its residents.
He informed that the leisure valley near DAV Public School in Bhai Randhir Singh Nagar would be dedicated to the residents by the end of this year and it would be a new years gift for the residents.
He informed that near DAV Public School, the leisure valley is around 1.5 kilometres in length (starting from opposite DAV Public School till Railway Crossing near Pakhowal Road) and with a cost of around Rs 3 crore. He informed that the land for leisure valleys have been provided by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust and Municipal Corporation Ludhiana.
He informed that near DAV Public School, the vacant chunk of land was literally being used as a garbage dump. He said that this space would soon be fully transformed into one of the best leisure valleys of the city. Here, the Municipal Corporation has also constructed rainwater recharging well.
Mr Bharat Bhushan Ashu informed that this project (near DAV Public School) was designed by former students of Horticulture Department of Punjab Agricultural University and the features will be modern infrastructure, benches, canopies, imported grass, plants, lighting etc. He informed that this leisure valley would also have tennis, badminton and volleyball courts, along with a senior citizen home, an open gym, besides several other facilities.
Mr Raman Balasubramanian informed that the progress of the under-construction leisure valleys is being monitored personally by him on a daily basis. He assured that there would be zero tolerance when it comes to the quality of work being carried out in these leisure valleys.
