Dept directed to remove all potholes: PWD Min

PWD Minister Deepak Pauskar acknowledged in the Assembly that 30 per cent of the pre-monsoon maintenance and repair of roads remained incomplete even as he assured to direct dept officials to get the roads rid of potholes immediately. 
Responding to the complains by the ruling as well as opposition MLAs that the roads across the State are in a bad condition, Pauskar said repair works ahead of the monsoons remained incomplete due to unavailability of tar. “The annual requirement of tar for the state is 30,000 tonnes and to ensure that the same problem does not occur in the future, the dept will be appointing an agency, which will import the tar for the dept. We will not have to depend on other states or any specific company,”he said.
He added that the dept has roped in a jet patcher machine on trial basis to get rid of the potholes along the important roads. “The service roads near the Zuari Bridge which are with potholes will be taken up and another agency which has come with another technology to get rid of the potholes will be taken on board on trial basis”, he added. He further informed that PWD engineers will also be held responsible alongwith the contractor for the maintenance of the highways and that all the roads will be completed by the 2020 end.
Stating that sewage connection to every household will be mandatory, Pauskar said the dept will provide a sewage connection every household, which has a water connection and levy an additional fees of Rs 25 on the water bill to recover the costs of the connection.
