VISAKHAPATNAM: RINL CMD P Madhusudan inaugurated the ‘Pragati Marg’, an alternative road laid from Kendriya Vidyalaya Junction in Ukkunagaram (Vizag Steel Plant township) to expansion road, a length of 2.84 km, Monday.

The road has been laid by Town Administration Department (TAD) in a record time of 25 days with the main aim to ease traffic congestion. The road would facilitate employees to reach the expansion units directly from the township bypassing the main approach road and thereby reducing travel time and distance. The road would also act as a surveillance road to check any possible encroachments or thefts as it is laid along the western land boundary of the VSP.

On the occasion, Madhusudan complimented the TAD for expeditiously completing the road as a model project and said it was a great achievement. He called upon the RINL collective to emulate the TAD to complete other works in the plant as early as possible.

The plant would reach 7.3 mtpa capacity very soon and he expressed the need to apply safety consciousness and urged the employees to fully utilise the new road facility to reach the work area safely.

Directors (Projects) PC Mohapatra, (Personnel) GBS Prasad, (Operations) DN Rao, (Finance) TVS Krishna Kumar and union leaders attended.

Executive directors, GMs, senior officials of RINL, president and secretaries of Steel Executives Association YK Garg and P Satyanarayana and recognised union general secretary Mantri Rajsekhar were also present.
