GURGAON As a pilot project, the berms along the roadsides would be landscaped in DLF City. The encroachments upon the berms have been cleared and the landscaping work has started. Starting with Arjun Marg in DLF Phase I, the berms on other major roads like Akashneem Marg would be beautified in the coming days.
Residents had encroached upon the berms by constructing boundary walls which were demolished last month. The 18m arterial roads were used as a parking space by market visitors and residents. After they were freed of illegal encroachments, the landscaping drive has started.
The DLF City RWA came up with the beautification project concept by converting the area into a green belt and involving the builder for the work. "The berms have to be left as it is but cannot be used for parking or any other purpose," said Sudhir Kapoor, general secretary of DLF City RWA.
