Paver blocks to give way to concrete

In the island city, consultants have been appointed to check viability of concretising 73 paver block junctions. "Some of the junctions may be dropped. We have surveyed the underground utilities and submitted our remarks to consultants. We have suggested that the underground utilities be placed in ducts. It will take about a month to finalise the plan. We hope once concretised, the roads will not be excavated for at least 25 years," said an official of the BMC roads department.
