The world is growing and changing everyday and we most certainly can see the changes everyday in our surroundings. It could be a new building that is coming up in the city or a flyover that will change the way transport happens. This time we are looking at a cue card that talks about a part of your city that is changing and tries to note down the points on your feelings about it.

Our country is seeing major changes in the recent years. With economy of our country growing, the shift has now come towards making the country a better place to live in. As a result, our government has decided to make 109 cities in the country as smart cities and Dehradun also falls under this plan. We have seen in the present day, the construction of sewers and water pipe line all over the city. But, I think one major change that I would like to talk about is the flyover construction on the national highway roads.

All through the city, there are three major highway out of which two are used for daily communication as well. Construction of flyover took place on these roads. Although, during the construction we faced lot of issues. Because, the road got narrower and until the flyover was made, everyone had to go through it making it difficult to traverse through those path. Even more, there was lot of dust left during the flyover making.

However, once completely constructed it made our lives so much more easier. We had to not bother about those racing trucks as they usually passed over the flyover. This helped in reducing the traffic and more importantly the risk of accidents. I believe it was a brilliant step taken by the government to ensure safety as well as faster pace for everyone while commuting.
