Divisional Commissioner Kashmir, Baseer Ahmad Khan, today convened a meeting to review the progress of Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover and mini-flyover TRC (Grade Separator).

Director ERA, deputy director Planning, executive engineers of ERA, executing companies, contractors and other concerned officers were present in the meeting.

In view of huge volume of work, the Div Com directed contractors to enhance the scale of labour at the site so that the project is completed in a fixed timeline.

He also directed them to ensure that the construction material is covered properly with tarpaulins or canopies during transportation to different locations along Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover.

Div Com directed SSP Traffic City Srinagar not to stop the vehicles engaged in transportation of construction material for Jehangir Chowk-Rambagh flyover, except during peak morning and evening hours.
