Ludhiana plans cement roads

In order to stop wastage of money on repeated repairing of roads, the civic authorities in Ludhiana have decided to construct cement roads instead of those of bitumen. For this, they have zeroed in on two major roads. After the initial trial, the authorities would repair the roads using cement that tend to give way in the rainy season. The road chosen for the experiment is the one near to Gill Chowk while the other one is near Rahon Road. MS Jaggi, Joint Commissioner and Head of Bridges and Road Department, said the experiment would be conducted on two major roads where there is heavy flow of traffic and in the rainy season, water stagnation results in early breakage. He added that they would observe the results this rainy season and then, the experiment could be carried out on other busy roads as well.
