Nearly a year after it constructed the city’s first-ever plastic road in Sector 51, the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) has now made the use of plastic waste mandatory in the construction of arterial roads.
MCG chief engineer Raman Sharma said that henceforth all tenders will be floated with this clause and the concessionaires will have to procure plastic waste from MCG’s shredding centre in Begumpur Khatola.
“In December last year, we had constructed the first-ever plastic road in the city, a 100-metre stretch in Sector 51. We found plastic roads to be extremely durable. The use of plastic lowered our maintenance costs as it does not allow water to stagnate and form potholes.
Hence, we have passed a rule mandating the use of plastic in road construction falling under MCG’s jurisdiction,” said Sharma. Read More
