Now, it started concentrating on the roads connecting the main roads and launched the encroachment removal drive.
Sankar Vilas center, Brodipeta roads, Arundel peta lines, Donka road, Kothapeta road and other roads are proposed for widening.
GMC assistant city planner Subba Reddy said that the road from district library of Arundelpetto Donka road Would be widened to 60 feet for hassle-free travel.
This is the main road to the railway station, bus station and other important centres so it was natural that the encroachments removal drive started on this road, Mr. Subba Reddy said.
He said that old electricity poles and central dividers Would be removed and a new divider be constructed after Widening of the road.
The GMC Officials started marking the road for Widening.
Locals K. Raghu Vamsi and others said that the heavy traffic and frequent traffic jams during mornings and evenings were delaying students going to and from school and colleges.
