" S/Shri Digambar Kamat, Leader of Opposition, Rohan Khaunte, Vijai Sardesai, Prasad Gaonkar and Vinod Paliencar, Mlas' to call the attention of the PWD/ Chief Minister/GSIDC to the following:
"Fear and anxiety in the minds of the people due to dilapidated condition of the National Highway and State roads from Patradevi to Canacona, which is leading to heavy traffic congestion and frequent accidents. The contractors need to be held accountable for haphazard, delayed and substandard job which is affecting entire stretch joining North to South Goa. The contractors are carrying out works at various ends without efficiently completing any portion. Concerns have been raised on there being no visible diversion signs for late night commuters, debris thrown in gutters leading to flooding of roads and fields during rains, major accidents and heavy traffic congestion amidst rising fuel prices. The completion of works on Atal Setu bridge project remains incomplete till date. The haphazard works on these roads have affected basic amenities such as electricity, water, internet. There has been concerns over damage to main water pipelines causing water shortage in constituencies, damage to electrical poles causing extended power failure, cutting of electrical cables for which action needs to be taken on contractors. These basic amenities should not be compromised on pretext of infrastructural development of State, particularly keeping in mind the Covid crisis. The steps the Government proposes to take in this regard."
