VIJAYAWADA: “My aim is to have world-class roads in Andhra Pradesh. Every village should be connected with BT road and every village should have cement roads.” This is what Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu told the Superintending Engineers of the Roads and Buildings Department at a review meeting here on Saturday.

“Monitoring the quality of roads should be your priority,” he said, adding that the department should establish a research wing to study the best technologies and practices in the world and implement them here.  “If any contractor is found compromising on quality, blacklist him,” he said, emphasising the need for quality control.

The Chief Minister said that the Beach Road (NH-216) from Bheemunipatnam to Ongole should be one of the best coastal roads in the country. “This can be modeled after the Pacific Coast Highway of California. Study how the road passes across the coast and if there are any tributaries, build bridges over them,” he said. “This road should again be linked to inland waterways that will be formed.”

“The Kolkata-Vijayawada-Chennai road should have an Outer Ring Road connecting Hyderabad, Bangalore and Jagdalpur, Naidu said and added: “This ORR will inter-connect around 7 National Highways”. 

Connecting roads through the shortest distances possible should be the focus, he  stated.
