The roads of the capital Delhi will be built from the mountain of garbage! Do you know where the pilot path starts from?

New Delhi. The East Delhi Municipal Corporation will now prepare the road from the waste from the Ghazipur landfill. Eastern Corporation will start this as a pilot project in collaboration with the Central Road Research Institute.

Around 25,000 metric tons of legacy waste will be used for the construction of an approximately one kilometer long road in Kalyanpuri. This will be the first unique project of a municipal corporation in the country to build a road from solid waste.

According to the information, a technical team from the Office of the Chief Scientific Adviser of the Government of India together with senior representatives of the Municipal Corporation of East Delhi and the Research Institute of Central Highways visited the three sites. But for this Kalyan Puri has been finalized as Pilot Project Road. The pilot project is being developed under the Waste to Sapanda Mission of the Office of the Chief Scientific Adviser.

The Waste to Wealth Mission is one of nine scientific missions of the Prime Minister’s Science, Technology and Innovation Advisory Council, to identify, test and trial waste-to-wealth technologies.

The mission has identified the Ghazipur dump as a priority. On this pilot road, the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC) will provide segregated waste from the landfill to fill potholes and build roads, which will reduce the amount of waste from the landfill and reduce its height.

At the same time, the path can be made using waste creatively. Likewise, in the realization of this pilot road, the Central Institute of Road Research will provide technical assistance by giving its scheme.
