With the aim of reducing heavy vehicles on district roads, and providing safe traffic arrangements for the citizens, District Collector Kiran Kaushal, along with SP Jitendra Singh Meena, inspected coal mine premises on Wednesday.
They reached Kusmunda mine, where they inspected the arrangements for the entry and exit of the coal carrying vehicles. SECL management was shocked by the sudden inspection.
Collector, accompanied by SP, reached Kusmunda mine campus for inspection. They came to know that barrier no. 1 and 4 are being used by transporters to transport coal from Kusmunda mines. SECL officers informed the officers that about 370 vehicles pass from barrier no. 1 and about 350 vehicles from barrier no. 4 everyday. They added that 340 vehicles headed to Sarguja, Bilaspur and Raipur pass through gate no.3. Also, about 350 vehicles leave for Hardibazaar through barrier no.5. TheCollector proposed to use an alternative route for a few out of the 900 vehicles that use the Kanberi road.
Tehsildar Rohit Thakur said that the coal supplied to Balco power plant, from Kusmunda, is being transported through barrier number, using Kanberi road and passing through Sarwmangla Chowk. After considering this, Collector Kaushal directed the officers to think about changing their route and using Chakabura-Jawali-Dhelvadih bypass, crssing Dipka.
She further suggested using the same route for the coal transporters from Gevra mines, which would bring down the number of vehicles on Kanberi road.
