Pune, 20th January 2022: The Pune Zilla Parishad (ZP) has finished the construction of road stretches over 246 km in a single day on January 18. A part of Zilla Parishad’s campaign, this initiative aimed to complete multiple development related works in 100 days.

The entire distance includes 125 km of tarred roads, 46 km of concrete cement roads and 90 km of road constructed in the form of a paving block, mud road, etc.

ZP CEO Ayush Prasad said, “We ensured that the material required reached the site by January 15. We helped contractors in solving labour staff and other material related issues. An officer of the Zilla Parishad team was appointed for coordination at every site”

He further added, “The initiative was part of our campaign to complete some development-related work in 100 days. Around 3,000 works of 17,000 targets have been already completed and we aim to complete most of the work before February 2022.”

The work for this initiative was started on January 3 by the district administrations. To ensure that everything was sorted before the work started, meetings were held by officials with local parties, contractors. This helped to solve land-related disputes, labour, and material-related issues of contractors on time. MLAs and MPs across party lines provided their participation in the development-related work and they visited the ongoing work site on January 18 to review the work.

Prasad said, “Minimum width of every road is 3.5 meters while the maximum is 7.5 meters. We ensured that the quality was maintained while constructing the roads. We have a regular system involving third-party agencies such as IIT Bombay, CoEP and Quality Assurance Cell to check the quality of roads.”

“This effort of 246 km stretch completion is the outcome of 100 days of previous administrative work and meticulous planning of 15 days. This includes 85 to 90 per cent construction of new roads, around 5 per cent of them are old roads while 5 to 10 per cent are road conversions, where mud roads or other types of roads are converted into tarred roads,” added Prasad.
