Plans afoot to develop more such parks with private participation
SALEM: The Salem Civil Engineers Association and Salem Corporation have taken joint efforts to develop a roadside park near the Periyar Bridge here.
The park would have sprawling lawns and flowering plants.
The Corporation as a part of its drive to beautify the city has decided to develop such roadside parks in the city with private participation.
Till recently the area has been left unattended encouraging anti-socials to occupy the place both during night and day hours.
To avoid such unnecessary intrusion and to make the place being misused, the Corporation and the association had undertaken the venture to beautify the place.
The works would be completed very soon, said officials.
On instructions from district administration, Corporation had also undertaken similar works opposite Government Medical College Hospital, which used to be encroached upon by many.
Corporation evicted the encroachers and initiated the beautifying works.
An iron mesh also had been erected to secure the place.
