GUWAHATI, Nov 5: State PWD Minister Parimal Shuklabaidya, along with the PWD (Road) Chief Engineer, inspected works of roads under Guwahati division on Saturday night.

The minister first visited JC Das Road (Phul Galli) at Fancy Bazar around 11 pm, followed by GNB Road where SDBC work is going on in the Noonmati area around 11.40 PM. He visited Bishnu Rabha Path near Hockey Stadium at 12.30 pm where work was going on. He stayed there up to 1 am.

In all the sites the minister interacted with PWD officials and contractors. He emphasized quality work and asked them to complete works on time. He also enquired of hindrances, if any, in the execution of works. Officials and contractors informed him of the delay in carrying out some works due to this year’s longer period of rain and scarcity of forest materials. Minister assured them that forest materials would be made available very soon.

The officials informed the minister that in a city like Guwahati, day time work on roads is not possible due to heavy traffic, and hence the work has to be taken up only at night, and that too, from 11 pm to 5 am.
