PARSA, June 20: Construction of the 27 kilometers Pathalaiya integrated check post is likely to get delayed due to various factors including the negligence of the contractor.
Lack of budget and construction materials is the other cause behind the delay. The project for the construction of a key trade route is struggling to progress as the land occupiers in Jitpur bazaar on the either side of the road are neglecting the direction by the authority to vacate the land, said the project engineer and information officer Saumya Aananda. The deadline to vacate the land expired on May 29.
Around 220 houses and huts, small and big, should be demolished to widen the road 25 meters on each side, said the project chief Rabindra Lal Das.
The project started from July 13, 2016 with the completion target of mid January 2019. The estimated cost is Rs 5.5 billion funded by the government. Three bridges will be constructed along the road, said engineer Aananda. RSS
