Complete 4th Tawi Bridge

Authorities still failed to renovate the 4th Tawi bridge, which is a matter of concern. Public in and around the areas are suffering badly as this bridge connects Ware House, Chattha and Satwari Cantonment areas with Jammu-Akhnoor-Rajouri road.
The snail works of JKPCC department once again failed to complete the protection work of this vital bridge. This is not the first time when JKPCC have started and given the dead line of the completion of work but again and again they failed to complete it. However, the task for which 45 days were given to the JKPCC in May this year to complete the protection work on Rs 17 crore project could not be completed even after six months. However, the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti along with DyCM Dr Nirmal Singh had also taken review of the work few days before the opening of its one tube on September 10 this year, but even after that no serious progress on the work could be witnessed.
Even the JKPCC had declared that the work was expected to be completed in one and half months but agency could not meet the deadline. Though due to floods, the work was delayed and also suffered some damages at the site but even then six months time was more than sufficient to complete this task.
Authorities should direct the concerned JKPCC to complete the work within month so that the people of the areas should not suffer any more. Authorities should also probe the matter with some agency so that the reason behind the delaying of the work would be known and the person who is responsible for the delaying of the work should be punished as per law. However, more than three months has ago when this renovation work has started on this bridge and still not completed is a matter of concern.
