Cable laying contractors have to supervise their work of digging on the Jammu-Sriangar highway very carefully and ensure no inconvenience is caused to smooth vehicular movement and general public.
This was instructed by Deputy Commissioner Ramban Mohammad Aijaz while chairing a meeting with company representatives and cable contractors in his office chamber today.
He said that the motorable part of NH at many locations has been shrunk due to mismanagement of rubble and debris.
While making reference of the upcoming Darbar Move and Shree Amarnath Ji Yatra, the DC impressed upon the contractors and company representatives to apply such methods for digging by which the highway remains unaffected and free from any hindrance.
Stressing that broken patches on highway were responsible for traffic jams and slow vehicular movement, the DC asked the contractors not to proceed further before proper filling up of 200 meters stretch dug for laying cable wires.
DC also asked the contractors to adhere to all terms and conditions of contract agreement signed with National Highways Authority of India. Any type of violation will attract legal action, he added while sounding a cautioning note to them.
Among others the meeting was also attended by Area Manager Reliance JIO Rajesh Kumar, Assistant Manager Ericsson Saleem Raza, Sterlite Technician Ajai Chib and various contractors.
Earlier, Assistant Manager Ericsson informed that out of 13 km stretch from Patnitop to Darmoond, 4 kms stand completed in all respect and work of digging on 9 km shall be completed very soon. He assured the DC about complete supervision of the digging work.
