From next week,East corporation will deploy mobile maintenance vans in colonies of Shahdara (North) and Shahdara (South) to fix potholes and damaged footpaths.

Civic officials said the vans will patrol round the clock. “Whenever there is a complaint of broken foothpaths or potholes,estimates are made and repair work is undertaken. This process usually takes over a month. We have decided to deploy vans,which will work all day for speedy repair work,” said Municipal Commissioner Sajjan Singh Yadav.

On a pilot basis,the corporation will start two mobile maintenance vans. These will have the required cement concrete material,foothpath tiles,other equipment,and workers employed by the civic body. “The civic body has been receiving several complaints of broken culverts and drains. Apart from repair of drains,the mobile maintenance vans will also address complaints of open manholes,tiling of footpaths and filling of potholes,” said an official.

Citizens can also inform the East corporation control room helpline to request deployment of mobile maintenance vans,said the official.
