Dikshit takes stock of CWG progress

In a meeting to review the Commonwealth Games progress, chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Friday directed the Delhi Traffic Police to submit a comprehensive list of pedestrian crossings and bus bays by July 24 so that PWD can paint pedestrian crossings to give the city a facelift. She also directed all agencies to tighten loose ends.

MCD informed those present at the meeting that 21,774 metric tonnes of malba had been removed in the past 12 days.

Dikshit expressed displeasure over the presence of onlyjunior-level officers of Delhi Traffic Police in the weekly review meetings, a statement from the CM's office said. She told the traffic police that their signal poles were in a bad shape and their barricades were improperly arranged giving an unpleasant look to the city.

Dikshit instructed all agencies and stakeholders to concentrate on portraying an attractive image of the city by putting up banners, flags and view cutters as approved by the Organizing Committee of the Games.

The Discoms were instructed to paint their transformers and other visible installations. The railways was instructed to give four important stations New Delhi, Old Delhi, Nizamuddin and Anand Vihar a makeover.
Meanwhile, the Delhi Cabinet on Friday gave clearance for purchase of 31 aambulances for the Games.
