Briefing about the ongoing works, Nagender, Executive Engineer of Moosapet, said," We are constructing around 12 new roads in the internal lanes of Gopalnagar and Allapur as the area has a majority of gravel roads and all the roads would be transformed into CC roads. A few more roads in Moosapet and Fathenagar would be developed shortly. Internal colonies like Lalajipet would also get a facelift with the construction of CC roads. A total of 28 roads are currently under implementation and works are in process on a budget of 4 Crores.
