Jamshedpur, March 14: Tata Steel and the district administration have agreed to close Jubilee Park road forever. The decision has been taken in view of safety and security reasons. A final announcement about the closer of the road is expected to be made soon. The gates of the park are already closed due to Covid-19 pandemic.
A gift to the citizens of Jamshedpur by Tata Steel on the occasion of its golden jubilee in 1958, the 237.75- acre jubilee perk, modelled after Brindavan Gardens in Mysore, is considered the green heart of the city.
Jubilee Park, one of the oldest and famous landmarks of Jamshedpur, had in the past restricted entry of vehicles in view of times rising cases of accidents due to rash driving, especially in late evening, and movement of anti-social elements. As per the decisions taken there is no vehicle movement inside the iconic Jubilee Park on Sundays for convenience of visitors inside the park.
Moreover, both the entry/ exit gates of the park remain closed by 8.00 pm (Monday to Saturday) and no vehicular/ public movement were allowed 8.00 pm onwards inside the park. No vehicles are allowed on the road passing through JN Tata Statue – Mughal Gardens – Children Park – Nicco Amusement Park at any time.
A district official informed that from now onwards, the company has decided to ban entry of any vehicle in the park. The idea is also to make the park ecofriendly. Plans are also in pipeline to run battery operated vehicles inside the park for people. Parking zones will also come up on both sides of the gate of the park.
