THANE: Six roads in Thane will soon have a facelift as the Thane Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion has fi­nalised a list of roads to be de­vel­oped as model roads.

The pro­posal to con­vert th­ese roads into model roads will be tabled in the gen­eral body meet­ing to be held next week.

While the city has sev­eral wide roads, th­ese six roads have not been de­signed ac­cord­ing to the con­ve­nience of the pedes­tri­ans and traf­fic.

Most roads do not have proper sig­nage and pedes­trian cross­ings are worn out. Over­flow­ing dust­bins lead to lit­ter­ing on the roads. Most foot­paths are in poor state.

With a bud­get of Rs66 crore, the model roads will be de­signed to re­solve th­ese is­sues.

Civic com­mis­sioner San­jeev Jaiswal said, “The roads will have proper sig­nage, bus bays, huge green cov­ers and rail­ings. Other ameni­ties in­clude cy­cle tracks, pedes­trian walk­ways, hawking zones, seat­ing ar­range­ments, car parks and dust­bins among oth­ers. The roads will also be aes­thet­i­cally beau­ti­fied.”
