SAMBALPUR: Work on the new road connecting NH 6 near WESCO office in Ainthapali area here is on in full swing and is likely to be completed by March next year. The work on the project began in October this year.

The 860-metre stretch is being constructed from Bhima Bhoi Park at Bhima Bhoi Nagar and will  connect NH 6 near  WESCO office.

Deputy Executive Engineer of Public Works Department (PWD), Division I, Sambalpur, Narayan Patel said, “The new road is being constructed at an estimated cost of `3.2 crore funded by the State Government.”
