RAMBAN, Sept 23: Secretary Transport, G Prasanna Ramaswamy made a firsthand appraisal of the relevant factors governing traffic movement on Jammu-Srinagar National Highway (NH-44) in the critical 66-km Nashri to Banihal stretch in Ramban District. The visit follows the high-level review meeting chaired by Chief Secretary to streamline traffic flow on NH-44 in view of the movement of fruit-laden trucks from Valley and the urgent need for repairs to make critical stretches capable of supporting double carriageway, to reduce travel time.
Deputy Commissioner, Ramban, Mussarat Islam, SDM Ramsoo Viqar Ahmed, SDM Banihal, Zaheer Abbas, ARTO Ramban, Samrinder Singh, DySPs Traffic, Parul Bhardwaj and Asgar Malik besides other officers, were present on the occasion.
Personally assessing the shooting stone zone between Cafeteria Morh and Mehar, near Ramban town, the Transport Secretary, who has taken over the charge recently, also inspected the stretch along Nashri, Dhalwas, Peerah and Chanderkote on which NHAI is currently working to make NH-44 four-laned.
It is notable that pursuant upon the meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary, NHAI shall take a 4-hour haltage of traffic between 3.00 am and 7.00 am from tomorrow for the next five days to remove accumulated debris to restore double carriageway at critical spots between Nashri and Banihal, including Cafeteria Morh and Mehar and Rampardi towards Ramsoo-Banihal section.
The Transport Secretary, underlining the need to facilitate the movement of fruit trucks from Kashmir said the Government will take all measures for hassle-free movement of fruit HMVs towards their destinations as per timelines.
Briefing the Transport Secretary on issues related to NH-44 traffic and ongoing four-laning works, the Deputy Commissioner handed out an assurance that all decisions taken in the meeting chaired by the Chief Secretary shall be implemented to ensure smooth movement of vehicles.
