Jammu & Kashmir constructed a record 3,300 km of rural roads in 2020-21 under various schemes, thereby providing safe and secure all-weather connectivity to remote habitations across the union territory.

Revealing this at a meeting on Wednesday, J&K chief secretary B V R Subrahmanyam said that the administration has now fixed a target to construct 4,200 km of road length in 2021-22. Most of the work was undertaken under the flagship programme ‘Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana’.

While appreciating the progress made in the previous financial year, the chief secretary observed that the public works department (PWD) registered an unprecedented achievement by completing 3,300 km of rural roads under various schemes, and should utilize the acquired expertise in fast-tracked project execution to achieve even better results. The projected target for 2021-22 includes 800 km and 3,400 km rural roads in Kashmir and Jammu provinces, respectively.

He asked the PWD principal secretary to periodically review district-wise progress for timely resolution of bottlenecks and associated challenges. The department was also asked to maintain quality standards of new constructions and ensure the creation of high-quality infrastructure, besides undertaking routine inspections of the works with focussed attention on maintenance works.
