Nadia builds 1,822 km rural roads under PMGSY scheme

Nadia has laid 1822 km of rural roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) project, making it a great success in bringing rural connectivity to far-flung places.

It has proposed 30 roads totalling 198.10 km for Rs 175.81 crore under the PMGSY-III plan, having been recognised as a top-performing district in the construction of rural roads.

Through video-based Automatic Traffic Counter and Classifier (ATCC) and Axle Wheel Pad (AWP), the Nadia division of West Bengal State Rural Development Agency has already put together submitted project reports using modern tools and machines to detect real-time traffic data, including vehicle count, classification, traffic volume, average traffic speed, and road thickness.

The PMGSY was launched in December 2000 as a 100% centrally supported initiative to provide all-weather road access to unconnected habitations with a population of 500 people or more by utilising the Central government's high-speed diesel cess.

Mr Dutta told the media that under the PMGSY-I scheme, a total of 252 roads were built in the district for a distance of 1690 km for Rs 639 crore over 10 years ending in 2018-19. Following that, Rs 95.75 crore was invested under the PMGSY-II scheme, which was executed on a cost-sharing basis, to lay 14 roads covering a distance of 132 km.
