In Pics: Delhi Gets A Swachh Makeover For G20Summit

The 18th G20 Summit, to be held over the weekend in the national capital welcomes more than 25 heads of state and global institution leaders. The civic agencies have been working endlessly for the transformation of the city including enhancement of the infrastructure, public services, and the overall appeal of the city. Here's a glimpse of the project to prepare the national capital for the big event:

Roadsides, flyovers and roundabouts across the city have been beautified with street art and wall paintings depicting Indian art form and culture.

The roads and footpaths have been cleaned using water sprinklers and suction cum jetting machines to keep roads clean and dust-free. Paintings of freedom fighters can also be seen under a flyover on Outer Ring Road.

The central and state government have planted 6.75 lakh plants to beautify and decorate the city, officials said, out of which the forest department and the Delhi Parks and Garden Society have planted 3.75 lakh, the New Delhi Municipal Council has planted 1 lakh.

Theme-based fountains and statues of deities and dancing figures can also be seen on route to the airport and in various other parts of the city. Pre-installed fountains on Sardar Patel Marg have been cleaned by the New Delhi Municipal Corporation workers.

On the Airport route, flags of some of the G20 countries have been installed along with a fountain.

A 27-foot long Nataraja statue has been installed at G20 venue Pragati Maidan in Delhi showcasing India's age-old traditions, and has been brought from Tamil Nadu by a special green corridor.

Monuments across the capital have been lit up ahead of the G20 Summit.

New Delhi Municipal Corporation has converted a park into a 'Waste-to-Art' park at Kautilya Marg in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. It has 22 animal and bird sculptures made from scrap which are also the national animals and birds of the countries involved in the Summit.

Colourful panels have been installed across the city to hide the under construction areas.
