Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, who returned from the US two days ago, conducted a meeting with officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) in his chamber at the secretariat to review the progress of the ongoing infrastructure works in the state, an official in the Chief Minister’s Office said.
“The chief minister reviewed all the ongoing (infrastructure) works and also set a deadline for completion of each of them,” the official said.
Among them, the most important is the expansion of the national highway in Goa as part of a project undertaken by the Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.
Two bridges one across the Mandovi river and another on Zuari are being constructed as part of the project. The entire work is expected to be completed by March next year.
