LUCKNOW: While the restoration work of the historical Rumi Darwaza by Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is underway, the diversion for the purpose has damaged the pavement adjacent to the city’s signature monument.
The restoration work started on Wednesday. Since then the movement of the vehicles diverted on the side of the historical monument through the pavement by making 50 metre slope roads on each side.
This resulted in damage to the pavement at many places.
“I came here to see our historical monuments but seeing the pathetic condition of the footpath, is a shame for us. Many visitors, even foreigners, come here and when they see this they will be saddened,” said Amit Rathore, a resident of Balaganj.
When contacted, district magistrate, Surya Pal Gangwar, said, “The damaged pavement will soon be repaired, and I will coordinate with DCP traffic to stop the movement of heavy vehicles.”
