No truck halts at Nagrota, Qazigund: CS



Chief Secretary Arun Kumar Mehta impressed upon the traffic authorities to completely do away with the halting of trucks at Nagrota and Qazigund on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway and instead let them ply smoothly without putting any forced halt to their movement either way between Srinagar and Jammu.

An official spokesman in a statement issued here said that Mehta made these remarks in a meeting with different stakeholders called for reviewing the progress of construction of National Highways under Prime Minister Development Programme across J&K.

He stressed upon the executing agencies to complete all these road projects providing intercon-nectivity to different regions in a stipulated time-frame.

The chief secretary enjoined upon them that the significance of these roads was very high and de-served all efforts to be completed on time.—KMS
