VASCO: At a time when the residents of Mormugao and Vasco have been complaining about the movement of heavy vehicles through residential areas, Gammon India Company constructing the port connectivity project, has assured to resolve all issues by the years end.
Gammon India Goa in-charge R Prabhakaran speaking to reporters during the inauguration of the hot mixing of roads near the Sewerage department Baina informed reporters that works on the pending arm connecting the four-lane flyover to the port and its shed will be completed by the end of the year.
“We have expedited the works on the pending scope of the Four lane Flyover project. The four-lane flyover is presently operational, but we have two arms connecting this project to the port, one arm that enters gate no 9, the main entrance to the port and the other arm connecting the flyover to its shed at Baina, near Ravindra Bhavan,” he said.
The officer added that the works of the hanging bridge leading to the main entry /Exit point of the port at gate no 9 will be competed by November, and the vehicles can move in and out by December.
“The arm connecting the MPA Shed to the flyover near Ravindra Bhavan at Baina will be completed by April end. The heavy vehicles moving to and from the port can then use the Port connectivity Flyover project, which will also help decongest the city roads. Regarding the up ramp proposed from the city to the Main four-lane flyover, it is in the discussion stage, and it is not yet cleared by the Government,” said Prabhakaran.
Speaking on the works of hot mixing of service road, Prabhakaran urged the locals to cooperate for a few days to complete the works.
“The works on the service road will be done in a week’s time. We will start from the sewerage plant and complete the work of around 1.5 km to Ravindra Bhavan in three days, and later we will take the work from Ravindra Bhavan to Desterro in the next few days. I request the locals to allow us a few days till we complete the work on the hot mixing of service roads and also urge the people not to use this road for around a week. We seek their Cooperation to complete this project and help everyone to have a great service road for their benefit,” said Prabhakaran.
