The Commissioner Secretary Public Works Department (R&B), Khursheed Ahmad Shah in presence of District Development Commissioner Baramulla Dr G N Itoo and Chief Engineer R&B Kashmir on Tuesday inaugurated two languishing projects costing Rs.5.87 crore in Baramulla district.
The spokesman said that these projects include three-kilometre long Yadipora- Haiderbeig road with the bridge, having an approved cost of Rs 4.00 crore and Wagoora- Khaitangan road with the bridge, costing Rs 1.87 crore.
The Commissioner Secretary on the occasion was informed that both the projects have connected several villages with each other and the projects will benefit about 45,000 population of the area including transporters. He was informed that Yadipora-Haiderbeig road project was withheld as only Rs.2.52 crore were earlier released for it, so the project was later put under languishing project programme. The second project Wagoora-Khaitangan road also came under the same languishing programme.
Speaking on the occasion, Commissioner Secretary reiterated the commitment of the Governor led administration for providing every possible facility to the people. He said that as a part of it, both the projects were completed and thrown open for the public today. He said that by the completion of Wagoora-Khaitangan road, a number of villages have been connected with each other, while as the people travelling from Baramulla to Babareshi will feel now better and their journey will be easier.
