Kiratpur-Nerchowk four-lane is set to start from May 1. All five tunnels are ready and these days mechanical and electrical work is going on. Along with this, work is also going on in Mahla. All the work will be completed within the next two months.
The important thing is that the central government has set a target until June 2024 to complete the four-laning from Garamora to Bhawana in Mandi, but the producer company Gabar Construction Company has set a target to complete the work a year earlier.
After the construction of four lanes, the distance from Kainchimod to Bilaspur will be only 22 kilometers. With the construction of this four-lane, the journey from Bilaspur to Kiratpur via Kainchimod will become easy and pleasant.
At present, it takes two hours from Bilaspur to Garamora via Swarghat, but this journey will be reduced to half an hour. Five tunnels are being constructed in this four-lane of a total of 47 km.
The construction of 48 small and big bridges is undergoing on this four-lane, in which about 18 out of 22 main bridges have been completed and the work of 6 big bridges is going on rapidly.
Apart from this, out of 16 minor bridges, 14 bridges have been completed and the remaining 2 bridges are under construction, for which all possible efforts are being made by the company to complete the construction work in time.
Colonel BS Chauhan, general manager of Gabar Construction, the manufacturer of this four-lane, said that all five tunnels are ready and now mechanical and electrical work is going on inside the tunnel.
The four-lane road is also almost ready, although some work is pending in between. However, there is an effort to fully open the four-lane for traffic from May 1.
Bilaspur Deputy Commissioner Abid Hussain Sadiq said that four-laning would be started from May 1. Colonel BS Chauhan, general manager of the producer company, has been called to Bilaspur on Monday.
Complete feedback on the progress so far will be taken after the meeting and soon the construction site of the four-lane will be visited.
