Bhilai, Sep 25: The repair works of the pothole filled service lane of National Highway continued overnight on the intervening night of Saturday. In order to provide relief to the citizens who commute daily from Raipur to Durg, the work of filling concrete in the potholes of the service road of NH is being conducted.
This work is also being done during the night hours so that the traffic movement is not obstructed during the day hours. Along with filling and levelling the potholes, the patch work of the road is also being conducted. Due to continuous rain, potholes had developed on the roads which had reduced the speed of traffic to great extent and was also causing mishaps. Considering the woes of the commuters, repair works are being conducted on war footing.
NH officials informed that along with the repair works, traffic marshals have also been appointed who are helping the police to regulate and organize the traffic. The construction work of the flyovers is also being done at a fast pace. Officials said that this work is being done round the clock on a war footing and it is being monitored continuously. It is noteworthy that the work of Kumhari Flyover is to be completed by October 15 for the movement of small vehicles and by November 15 for heavy vehicles.
In this regard, PWD Secretary Siddharth Komal Pardeshi and Collector Dr Sarveshwar Narendra Bhure took a meeting of NH officials and the construction agency the other day. In the meeting, the agency has been directed that the NH between Durg to Raipur is the most important road of the state with maximum traffic, where thousands of people commute every day.
Hence, there should be no delay in the construction work of this road. The officials had directed the construction agencies to appoint traffic marshals and regularly repair the service road and remove the blockages.
Continuous action is being taken on its compliance. NH officials are monitoring the road round the clock and the work is being completed expeditiously.
