Rajpur Road is one of the finest roads in Dehra Dun, lined on both the sides by lush green trees.
Public Works Department , Government of Uttarakhand, has come up with a project to four lane the road from Kishanpur to Max Hospital. The proposal will lead to felling of dozens of green trees.
The road is wide enough for the present traffic and for the traffic in forseeable future. The access road to Max Saket New Delhi is about the width of Rajpur Road and that of Max Patpargang Delhi that of Subhash Road. So, there is really no need to four lane the road.
Therefore nothing will be gained by felling precious green trees which are the beauty of the road.
We would like to request the PWD of Uttarkhand Govt to give up its proposal to widen the road and save the environment of Doon Valley
