He interacted with contractors/engineers and emphasized to be focused on quality and safety protocols while ensuring the progress of the works to meet the deadline.

He expressed his satisfaction that activities such as fixing of parapet, bearings, construction of median on the road etc. have started. He emphasized that we should decrease the length of barricades as soon as finishing activities in any stretch are getting completed. Field engineers assured that very soon they will be able to restore the full road width in various stretches of the priority section.
