Pune's getting spruced up

It’s not just flyovers and road dividers that are getting special attention in the run-up to the Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG), focus is also falling on Pune’s gardens.Aside from shrubs and flowers on the dividers of the main roads leading up to the venue, the city’s green spaces are getting a spruce up.“Gardens including Saras baug, Sambhaji park, Kamla Nehru park and Bund Garden are being cleaned up. Paving and trenching is on in many gardens and a foundation is being laid for flower beds,” Khaire said. He pointed out that during the Games, international athletes and officials were likely to visit parks and gardens in the evenings.“The idea is that they should be greeted with well kept and clean gardens. Work is on in full swing,” Khaire said. Khaire said that more than 40 km of road dividers are being beautified.“Besides signages and boards, the dividers will be laid with plants. We are also ensuring that they are maintained,” Khaire said. In addition, the walls bordering Baner road are being painted with CYG signs and its mascot.
