The government will upgrade 12 roads under the TenderSURE project as of now, sources in the Urban Development Department (UDD) said.

The roads include Church Street, Commercial Street, Brigade Road, Lavelle Road, Infantry Road and Queen’s Road.

“The TenderSURE proposal has been sent to the Technical Cell of the UDD for opinion. Once the opinion comes, it will be submitted to the high power committee headed by Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain for approval,” the sources added.

They opined that the commencement of the project may take at least three months.The design of the road is prepared by the Jana Urban Space, a sister organisation of the Janaagraha Centre for Citizenship and Democracy.
