New Delhi:

The 18th G20 Summit, to be held over the weekend, will welcome more than 25 heads of state and global institution leaders to the national capital.

Civic agencies are in the final stages of readying the city to host the heads of state and foreign delegates for the summit from September 8 to 11.

As a part of the makeover, the civic agencies have decked up 66 arterial roads and stretches across the city ahead of the big event. Roadsides and roundabouts near the summit venues, hotels and other areas with a high footfall of G20-related visitors, have been adorned with street art and wall paintings.

The beautification drives also include the installation of designer fountains, sculptures and flower pots along the roads. Fountains have been installed on important roads including the Janpath and Sansad Marg.

Here’s a glimpse of the project to prepare the national capital for the big event:
