Jamshedpur’s joggers park all set to be renovated
Joggers’ Park along Kadma-Sonari Link road is having a steady footfall of fitness enthusiasts despite its renovation work being in progress.
Located in a densely-populated area, people of different age group continue to visit the park despite the work for its paver blocks being in progress.
Post noon, The Telegraph Online spotted a 63-year-old man, Kamar Khan, sweating it out while walking through the unsettled track.
“I have been using this track ever since it came into being, which is a decade ago. It is good that the jogging track is being renovated, but the renovation work can not deter me from following my fitness routine,” said Khan, a businessman and resident of adjoining Dhatkidh locality.
Like the elderly Khan, scores of residents can be seen carrying out morning and evening walk, jogging and yoga on the one-kilometer-long track from early morning till late evening even the renovation work is in progress.
The renovation work of jogger’s park is being carried out by Tata Steel Utilities & Infrastructures Services Ltd (TSUISL), a subsidiary of steel major of Tata Steel.
“The jogging track along the Kadma-Sonari Link Road is renovated. It is a long track and is likely to take couple of months to be completed the project,” TSUISL’s spokesperson Sukanya Das while talking to The Telegraph Online.
She pointed out that the track is about a decade-old, and the constant usage has made the surface uneven at several points, adding that the joggers will have a pleasant experience when the renovation work is complete.
