The bridges engulf the economic gaps.

He rightly emphasized on dedicated focus to complete the projects within set timelines. Rightly he called for ensuring that there are no “inordinate delays” in execution of projects.
Importantly also, he called for developing a robust system for reporting of the damages and potholes so that “corrective measures can be taken at the earliest.” The officials should also assess the area specific requirements and prepare projects’ plans accordingly.
The government also said that 132 bridges are being targeted to be completed this year and the concerned authorities must expedite the processes to meet the deadlines given the fact given winter is approaching and it won’t take too long to take over.
Earlier this year, the Ministry for Rural Development, government of India, has approved Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY)-Phase-III for 1276 KMs costing Rs 1357 Cr for Jammu & Kashmir.
As put by the Lieutenant Governor, the modern rural infrastructure, enhanced connectivity will improve the rural economy and ease of living.
As per government data, 2353 PMGSY projects covering 17,336 km connecting 2071 habitations have already been completed.
In 2021-22, 3284 Kms PMGSY roads were constructed, apart from 7301 Kms blacktopped, it said. Also, 125 bridges are to be constructed under the scheme to provide connectivity to far-flung areas.
While new approval as well as completion of under construction projects under it is good as far as easing the living of the people in far-flung areas is concerned, there is need to ensure these projects are completed with promptness and within reasonable dispatch.
The road connectivity will surely facilitate easy and faster movement to and from the food processing centers, agricultural markets and other farmer related enterprises.
Affordable and easy access to high schools and higher secondary schools remains important in the present technological improvements in all sectors and as such these projects need to be completed without delays.
Also providing affordable and easily accessible health facilities should be the prime focus of the government for which road connectivity plays an important role. These projects need to be completed within the timeframes or earlier for sheer importance.
