It is given that the width of each road is 3m and the length of rectangular park is 90\; m and breadth is 60\; m

Now, We know that area of rectangle is = length \times breadth

Area of the total park is 

\Rightarrow 90 \times 60 = 5400 \ m^2                   -(i)

Area of road parallel to the width of the park ( ABCD ) is

\Rightarrow 60 \times 3 = 180 \ m^2                           -(ii)

Area of road parallel to the length of park ( PQRS )  is

\Rightarrow 3 \times 90 = 270 \ m^2                          -(iii)

The common area of both the roads ( KMLN ) is 

\Rightarrow 3 \times 3 = 9 \ m^2                               -(iv)

Area of roads = [(ii)+(iii)-(iv)]

\Rightarrow 180+270-9 = 441 \ m^2                

Now, the cost of constructing the roads at the rate of  Rs. 110\; per\; m^{2} is

\Rightarrow 441 \times 110 = 48510 \ Rs

Therefore, the cost of constructing the roads at the rate of  Rs. 110\; per\; m^{2} is Rs \ 48510
