Jamshedpur : The Steel City is all decked up to pay tributes to the founder Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata on his birth anniversary on March 3. Jubilee Park and other institutions of Tata Steel is being lit up for the occasion.
Various departments of the steel major are busy making tableaus to be displayed on the occasion. The entire Jubilee Park, including the Jayanti Sarovar and Upvan, has been decked up for the three-long festivities.
Tata Steel subsidiary looking after civic needs of the city, Jusco, is giving final touches to its beautification work on major roads which are being widened as part of its plan to ease traffic snarl. The road widening on dual-carriageway would see each of the carriageway have a width of 7.5 mtr while the central verge width would be between 1.5 mtr – 2 mtr.
The road widening and beautification work at Subernarekha Link Road (between Jubilee Park-Mango bridge), Bistupur Main Road (from Voltas Building-Tata Steel powerhouse), Sakchi Boulevard Road (from Circuit House- Bistupur GPO), Kharkhai Link Road (from Gopal Maidan-Adityapur bridge) , N-Road (from Bistupur traffic signal-Kharkhai sewage treatment plant), Kadani Road (from Tinplate Company-Baridih) and Seventh Avenue Road (from Sri Krishna Public School-Kharkhai Link Road) has been completed. Double-arm LED lights have been installed on each of these roads.
In the quest to provide better services to the citizens of Jamshedpur, decongestion of city roads and improving traffic safety has been identified as a key focus area. Accordingly, Tata Steel Board approved plans to widen 22 roads in next 2 years. Widening will not only decongests the road but also enable creation of dividers and footpaths which will improve traffic safety.
It’s not Tata Steel alone but, Steel city at large is gearing up to celebrate the Founder’s Day, the birth anniversary of J N Tata on 3rd March, the founder of the Steel major and the one who laid the foundation of the semi cosmopolitan city of the erstwhile Bihar. Inside works floats would demonstrate how the departments have incorporated their working based on Tata philosophy.
Besides, the annual tributes paying celebration inside the premises of Tata Steel works and illumination of the Jubilee Park, which is primarily the company’s affair, several of the city based social organisations have planned to hold programmes on 3rd March to pay their heartily tributes to the iconic personality of the Indian history.
These organisations will take out colourful pageantry near Food Plaza on March 3 to pay tributes to the visionary.
