    rural road network
    The West Bengal government has targeted the construction of 8,000 km rural road network, said official sources, adding that once construction work of the roads is completed, the rural connectivity in Bengal will reach a new high. The construction of rural roads will be carried out across the state. The state Panchayat and Rural Development department proposes to complete 35,000-odd rural roads by December this year. From 2015-16, the Centre is providing 60% of the cost of construction and the state government has to dish out 40% of the cost of the cost involved, along with maintenance. The department has also started upgrading the existing rural roads in West Midnapore, Jhargram, Bankura and Purulia districts. The ground work for the construction of rural roads is being carried out on war footing. The tender has been floated in many cases while the work order to start construction is ready. Senior officials of the department said the construction of rural roads has changed the scenario in rural Bengal. Now, in all the 341 blocks new roads have already been built and road connectivity has improved manifold.
