Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Commissioner M Hari Narayanan visited Gajuwaka zone along with MLA Palla Srinivas, zonal commissioner Chakradhar Rao, superintending engineer Prasad Raju, executive engineer Venu Gopal, assistant medical officer Dr Dhavala Bhaskar Rao, assistant city planner Sri Devi and other officials.
Officials have measured the widths of roads at Saraswathi Timber Depot, Jaggu Junction, High School Road, Jagriti Coaching Center, Gopal Redy Junction, Old Gajuwaka, Vadlapudi Rehabilitation Colony and other areas for widening them as the commissioner interacted with the public.
‘There is a need of an indoor stadium to cater the sports needs of Gajuwaka residents and for that indoor stadium should be established in place of Adarsh Public School’ requested Palla Srinivas. Anna Canteen should be operated from Peda Gantyada in the premises of veterinary hospital. Walking Track should be built in Siddartha Nagar after constructing compound wall. Roads from New Gajuwaka Junction to Pantulu Gari Meda and Vantillu Junction to Gopala Reddy Nagar should be widened along with both sides plantation, he added.
‘We are receiving objections from the public whenever we start road widening works’ replied Hari Narayanan. If local people cooperate with GVMC officials then there will be no delay in laying roads or else we modify these roads for the existing widths, he added.
