Lucknow: Lucknow Municipal Corporation is expected to start its long pending project of making interlocking tiles from the construction debris produced in the city. As per civic officials, the project is slated to start by the end of March.

According to LMC officials, construction work of the boundary walls for its upcoming plant near SGPGI has been completed and machines to produce the tiles are being purchased from Ahmedabad. LMC plans to purchase about five such machines with each having a capacity of 20 tonnes to manufacture tiles. The civic body has also estimated to produce about 800-1,000 interlocking tiles by using 100 metric tonne of construction debris.

The construction debris to produce interlocking tiles will be obtained from municipal corporations undergoing projects. LMC will also look to obtain debris  from private construction after charging its fee. As per LMC records, more than 800 metric tonne of construction debris is daily produced in Lucknow.

The project will be run on PPP (public-private partnership) model where the company responsible for running and producing the tiles will be given a certain amount of revenue generated to LMC every year. At first, the civic body will use these tiles in its own project and then try to sell its product to several construction material outlets and other concerned government departments like UPPWD and LDA.

LMC environment engineer Pankaj Bhusan said, “We are trying to kickstart the project before Holi. At first, we will produce interlocking bricks and later on we will try to produce tiles and marbles being used in households and flats.
