The civic bodies face a real challenge to maintain clean and safe roads free from dust/sand. This fine sand accumulates near the middle and on both sides of the roads.
Urban local bodies (ULBs) employ sweepers, who manually sweep and deposit the sand near the center of the road. However, continuous vehicular movement dislodges the mound by pushing the sand back onto the road, making it difficult for motorists and commuters.
Recognizing the above problem, Jalandhar Smart City Limited has solved this problem by purchasing mechanized road sweeping machine under Smart City Mission.

- Helping in regular cleaning of roads about 25 km by each machine per day.
- Machines work day & night and create minimum inconvenience to public and traffic.
- Absorb fine dust & sand that gets accumulated near the center median and reduces dust pollution.
- The machine acts like a big vacuum cleaner and has the capacity to intake large-size debris and other waste too.
- This machine is very useful, efficient and environment friendly.
- These machines are also known as city sweepers, these truck mounted sweepers are working very effectively as a great solution in solving the day to day challenge and provide clean and safe movement to motorists and commuters.
