Jamshedpur, Feb. 10: The steel city is all decked up to pay tributes to its founder Jamsteji Nusserwanji Tata on his birth anniversary on March 3. Jubilee Park and other institutions of Tata Steel are 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.
Jusco, Tata Steel subsidiary looking after civic needs of the city, is currently giving final touches to the 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 m, while the central verge width would be between 1.5 m – 2 m.

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 the steel city at large is gearing up to celebrate the Founder’s Day, the birth anniversary of J N Tata on March 3. Tata not only founded the steel company, but also laid the foundation of the cosmopolitan city in erstwhile Bihar.
