Jammu, Jan 24: Cracking whip on construction agencies working in the state, Minister for Roads and Buildings Abdul Majid Wani today said that cost overruns due to “undue and unnecessary delays in works shall have to be their exclusive liability.”
Reviewing pace of progress on prestigious Rs 640 crore Mughal road project at a high level meeting of the officers and engineers, Wani Thursday asked the executing agencies to stick to the targeted timeframe for completion of development works as delays result in escalation of project costs, an official statement said.
He asked the concerned engineers and executing agencies working on the Mughal road project to complete all the seven major bridges coming under the project by the end of May this year. He said Rs 55.75 crore have already been earmarked for construction of these vital major bridges.
He also directed the engineers to prepare a comprehensive project report for construction of 7-km long underground tunnel across Pir-Ki-Gali in between Zaznar to Chata Pani road stretch.
Wani said that construction of the Mughal road is a big turnaround in the socio-economic emancipation of the twin districts of Poonch and Rajouri besides giving boost to the tourism activities in the area.
He said all the efforts will be made to include this prestigious road from Bufliaz up to Pampore as a Highway Project as it qualifies all required specifications and is ideally fit for it.
He instructed the engineers to put in to use latest technologies for treatment of the avalanches and soil erosion prone stretches of the Mughal road, after conducting its geological studies.
