Beautification of Open Spaces Under The Zirakpur Flyover – The main idea is to beautify the open spaces which are under the flyover of Zirakpur. There is a lot of open space under the flyover of town. This is a total of 2.7 km stretch and soon this will be covered with flowering plants and trees.
Project Director, KL Sachdeva said that we’ve been asked to prepare a report for the beautification and new look of the flyover of Zirakpur by the administration. Once the report will be ready it will be handed over to higher authorities and after getting approvals, the beautification works of the vacant spaces under the flyover will begin.
