Chandigarh mulls escalators at bus stand underpass

Chandigarh, December 4

The UT Administration is planning to install escalators at the city's first underpass between Sector 17 and 22 to provide relief to the elderly.

The underpass was constructed in 1996 for the convenience of the people to reach the bus stand and vice versa.

Elderly residents' convenience on mind

  • The underpass was constructed in 1996 for the convenience of the people to reach the bus stand and vice versa.
  • In the absence of a ramp, elderly people were facing inconvenience in reaching the bus stand or the market opposite the bus stand.

In the absence of a ramp, elderly people were facing inconvenience in reaching the bus stand or the market opposite the bus stand.

Keeping in view the problems faced by elders, many resident welfare associations had written to the UT in this regard.

An official said the Engineering Department had conducted a survey for the installation of escalators and had asked the Architecture Department to prepare a design. After the finalisation of the design, the department would prepare cost estimates and then float tenders for installation of the escalators, said the official. — TNS
