J&K gets Rs. 450cr road upgrade

    Jammu Kashmir Road Upgrade
    The Centre has begun a massive exercise to overhaul the road infrastructure in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) and has decided to rebuild over 50 roads in the state, for which the road stretches have already been identified. Reports indicated that potholed roads particularly highways, slow troops down in hours of emergency and make them vulnerable to militant attacks like the one in Pampore, recently.

    The cost of the work is nearly Rs. 450-cr and score of these roads fall in areas like Akhnoor, Samba, Budgam, Tral, Sopore, and Shopian. A transport ministry official said, the construction of these roads is being taken under the Central Road Fund (CRF) scheme and to speed- up the work, Rs. 165-cr has already been disbursed for these projects. In another development, the Centre has directed the Border Road Organisation (BRO) to expedite construction of nearly 70 roads in J&K and in other areas of the state.
