GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Aug 8: With resurfacing and widening, Srinagar-Baramulla-Uri road has not only shortened the travel of thousands of commuter’s everyday but also provided a smooth driveway to once cumbersome journey.
The 96 kilometre long road is maintained and supervised by Project Beacon.
“At several places, the ongoing works on the road has been undertaken departmentally. Right from 6.75 kilometre, Parimpora four laning is under going at a fast pace,” said chief engineer of Project Beacon Brigadier T P S Rawat.
“The four laning will ease the traffic congestion on this stretch. Earlier, the four-laning work on Parimpora to Narbal was undertaken by a contractor. However, the progress of work remained abysmal during three years. After several notices, we cancelled the contract and started work departmentally,” said Brig Rawat.
He said that in two months, 25 percent work has been completed departmentally on this stretch. The main objective, he said is to provide hassle free drive to public as soon possible in shortest timeframe.
“We are working to complete the four laning as soon as possible. Besides several bridges were completed including Mohra Bridge, Hanjiwara and Datta Mandir Bridge. The resurfacing from Narbal to Palhalan was done this year and the bad patches in Pattan market are no more in sight,” he added.
Officer in Command 53 RCC Chinapan explained the difficulties in maintaining the road.
“Firstly the working season is limited and then the road remains busy round the clock with heavy traffic. Amid this, we work and accomplish the job on time,” he said, adding ‘from next ten days or so we will be macadamizing Palhalan to Barmaulla’.
