Leh will be more Beautiful
LAHDC, has started a drive to beautify Leh town even more by removing the hoardings, creating parking to reduce traffic on the roads and installation of dustbins to maintain the cleanliness of the town. The authorities have also started to setup benches for the convenience of tourists and have declared the main market as traffic free zone too. They have also decided to create new pavements and tile the older ones in the main market. I am sure this would certainly make the Leh town more beautiful and would help in creating more impacting beautiful impression on tourists who comes to witness this paradise of Ladakh …

Beautification work of the congested and small town, Leh, which is presently facing the problems of traffic congestion and poor drainage system, has begun. It has turned a popular tourist destination ever since Ladakh was thrown open to tourists.
After streamlining the traffic in the main markets of the town, the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Leh, has decided to bring down hoardings and advertisement boards displayed either with the permission of the Municipal Committee, Leh, or without its permission at different places of the town.
It has also decided to continue the display of hoardings and advertisement boards of government developmental schemes in the town and not to provide further permission to new advertisers.
Deepika Sharma, administrator, Municipal Committee, Leh, said: “The removal of hoardings and advertisement boards displayed at different places of the town is a part of the beautification drive being undertaken by the LAHDC. Since Leh is the gateway to the Ladakh region, the drive is being undertaken to leave a good impression on tourists”.
She said: “Installation of benches for the convenience of visitors is also a part of the drive, which will be completed soon. To maintain cleanliness in the markets, shopkeepers of the town have been asked to install dustbins individually or collectively near their areas”.
Under the drive, parking lots have been streamlined and new parking sites have been opened to decongest the traffic in the markets. The main markets have been declared no traffic zone.
The administrator added that: “The Municipal Committee has also asked the LAHDC to create new pavements and tile the old pavements in the main markets. The Council also agreed to provide more funds under the district plan for the beautification drive”.
