Work has started on installing new grill along the roadside of the Sardar Patel Marg to improve the aesthetic look of the main street located on way from the Delhi airport to the heart of the city which is slated to host the G20 summit next year, a senior official said on Friday.

NDMC Member Kuljeet Singh Chahal also said that the New Delhi Municipal Council has procured stocks of bulbs of tulips, which will be used for horticultural decoration of the city.

Lutyens' Delhi and few posh neighbouring areas fall within the jurisdiction of the Council.

"From airport to the main city, roads falls under the jurisdiction of the NHAI or PWD, and the Sardar Patel Marg falls under our jurisdiction. Since, any visitor coming to main city area of Delhi from the airport side will take that route, we are revamping the look of the street. Old grills were installed earlier, and at many places the fence is broken. So, a new grill fence will be mounted along this road," Chahal said.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has identified thrust areas and laid out a timeline for this work, they said.

"This will include improving road infrastructure and walkability, refurbishing signages, beautifying areas beneath flyovers, good LED lighting, illuminating trees, covering drains and replacing broken slabs, installing public art at important locations, developing modern kiosks, taking permanent measures to prevent waterlogging," a senior MCD official said.
