Lieutenant Governor reviews progress of J&K’s mega road projects

Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha chaired a high level meeting, at Civil Secretariat, to review the implementation and progress of mega road projects in Jammu & Kashmir. During the meeting, the Lt Governor took stock of the status of various roads, tunnels, bridges projects under Central sector, Centrally Sponsored and UT Sector schemes including Prime Minister’s Development Package, Parvatmala, PMGSY, CRIF, NABARD, C&T Macadamization, Pothole-free Road programme, Bridge programme and Road Sector.

Emphasising on dedicated focus to complete the projects within set timelines, the Lt Governor passed explicit directions to streamline the planning, tendering and execution process. It should be ensured that there are no inordinate delays in execution of projects, he added.

The Lt Governor directed to develop a robust system for reporting of the damages and potholes on the roads so that corrective measures can be taken at the earliest. He further asked the officials to assess the area specific requirements and prepare projects’ plans accordingly.

On being informed that 132 bridges are being targeted to be completed this year, the Lt Governor advised for exploring feasibility of pre-fabricated short span bridges in areas where immediate action is required.

Taking serious note of the various vulnerable spots along the roads, the Lt Governor instructed for installing crash barriers at such places to prevent accidents.

While reviewing the work on Z-Morh tunnel, the Lt Governor directed the concerned officials to complete the work on the escape tunnel at the earliest.
