Saroori pulls up R&B on ‘back breaking’ bypass
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar May 20: Annoyed at the “back breaking” potholes on the Hyderpora Bypass near the under construction flyover, the Minister for R&B GM Saroori on Thursday pulled up the department asking them to start immediate repairs of the highway.
Sources said the minister couldn’t resist the “back breaking” travel down the dilapidated highway and at once issued orders for the repairs.
Pertinently, the highway near the under construction site, has been in a bad condition for years and commuters often complain of inconvenience.
Meanwhile, an official handout confirmed the Saroori directions saying: “He asked the concerned engineers to fill up the small ditches, within a week, caused on the diversion road at flyover site, due to recent rains, to avoid public inconvenience and traffic jamming.”
Earlier, Saroori took stock of the work of under construction flyover being constructed at an estimated cost of Rs. 63 crore.
Chief Engineer, R&B, Kashmir Nazir Ahmad and other senior Engineers accompanied the minister.
The Minister was informed that Rs. 40 crore have been expended on the project so far.
“He impressed upon the executing agency to speed up the work on the project and ensure that one tube of the flyover is ready by October this year,” the handout added.
Saroori said “It would minimize the traffic pressure on the highway considerably.”
