Roads my govt’s USP: Nitish

Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Sunday described roads as the USP of his government and expressed confidence that his government would significantly reduce travel times from all districts headquarters to state capital.

‘The state government has already achieved a travel time from any district headquarter except Kisanganj to Patna within six hours by building quality roads. The target for Kisanganj district would also be achieved by this year,’ Kumar told the Fourth foundation function of Bihar State Road Development Corporation Limited (BSRDCL) here last night. ‘After completing the task, we will revise the target to less than six hours,’ the CM said. The government has accorded high priority to building quality roads and the state, hitherto known for potholed paths, is earning praise for quality roads, he said.

Pratya Amrit, Roads Development Secretary and Managing Director of BSRDCL, said the corporation was entrusted with renovating 1,461 km roads of 18 state highways, of which it had completed work on 675 km and job was underway on 499 km.
