Jagdish Kadam said, “Week seek opportunity in adversity. The Covid Situation was a big challenge for us, we had to maintain proper social distancing and the entire team had to go through rapid testing. But for our machinery, lockdown was a boon as they could safely travel in empty roads to the site.”

Ulhas Deebadwar, Secretary, PWD added how the involvement of the staff, family, government officials and the ministries throughout the project helped them a lot and the work was very smooth. There were weather constraints and strict Covid restrictions, but the team was high in confidence.
