Sector-17 Plaza is called the heart of Chandigarh. The Chandigarh Administration has again started trying to restore its lost glory. Preparations are on to make the plaza like London Street. The plaza will be illuminated with twinkling lights along with replacement of tiles. There is a plan to open a retail chain here by shifting many government offices.
UT Administration Chief Engineer CB Ojha said that at some point in the city, the plaza was crowded all the time, but after the opening of malls and other tourist places, the number of people coming to the plaza gradually reduced. The plaza is a very important place for the city, so many plans are being worked on again to attract people there.
There are plans to shift some shops from the 17 Wedge building located in the plaza and bring the retail chain there. White colored lights will be installed throughout the plaza. After their installation, the plaza will look like London Street. Its preparations are going on. The work will be completed by December. CB Ojha said that it is the effort of the department that this time the celebration of the new year should be celebrated in the plaza itself and all work should be completed before 26 January. The department plans to beautify the entire plaza but the part before the bridge market will be developed before December.
