All-weather 1-km roads for gram panchayats

Altogether16,000 km of village roads would be developed through the launch of one kilometre all-weather roads in all of 3,349 gram panchayats in West Bengal from January 7. Four more rural roads in all gram panchayats would also be taken up on the same day, CM Mamata Banerjee said in a Facebook post Saturday.

She claimed the initiative "has no parallel in the history of rural development in the country." The state's highway development corporation has also taken up upgradation and rehabilitation of 1000 km of the state highway connecting with national highways.

The corporation has started work on converting the Dankuni to Chandannagar and Chandannagar to Mogra stretch into a four-lane passageway, she added.
