Lyallpur Khalsa College Jalandhar Flyover To Have Two Subways.

Following the directions of Punjab & Haryana High Court,the administrative secretary P.W.D. and Municipal Corporation officials have decided to include construction of two subways across the railway line at an additional cost of Rs. 3.25 crore.This would facilitate movement of pedestrians, cyclists, school children , school buggies aged and disabled crossing the railway line. Students of St. Joseph's Schools( both boys & girls) and Seventh Day Adventist schools and residents of Defence Colony , Ranjit Nagar etc would stand to benefit.

Otherwise such commuters would either have had to take a 2 km diversion to the busy Garha Road Phatak or risk their lives with fast moving traffic ( including trucks and buses)on the new railway over bridge.

I think it is a great idea, if all the money allocated for the project actually get spent at the project without cutting corners.
