Last month I'd written to PWD about the need to repair the road to Bhojerhat from Action Area III of New Town. We'd just connected the East-West Major Arterial Road that runs beside the site earmarked for Infosys/Wipro to the PWD road that connects North and South 24-Paraganas and ends on Kolkata-Basanti Road near Bantala Leather Complex where there are Cognizant and other IT companies.
Ajit K Bardhan, PWD Secretary, spoke to me yesterday and sent a preliminary project report. It is a stretch of about 6 km and would cost Rs 1,590 lakhs to widen and strengthen it. He asked me if Hidco could share the cost.
I will place it in the next Board Meeting of Hidco that is scheduled on Monday the 30th July 2012.
