Patna: Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and his Deputy and Bihar Road Construction Minister Tejaswi Yadav on Monday, inaugurated 62 new roads in Bihar spanning a total of 450 kilometers to mark the 7th Foundation Day of Bihar State Road Development Corporation Ltd (BSRDCL).

Kumar and Yadav also inaugurated the proposed construction of 51 bridges across the state.

Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister directed the officials to finish building approach roads to newly-constructed bridges saying a huge amount of money was invested in building bridges but people were unable to use these in the lack of approaching roads.

Continuing to speak for the inexperienced Road Construction Minister, the Chief Minister said that Bihar roads were burdened by overloading because cars and trucks were carrying more loads than restricted by the government.

"This is a serious problem in the upkeep of the roads and highways and should be dealt with strictly. The Road Construction Department from now on should also submit a plan to reduce load on roads along with their new traffic plans," he said.

Kumar further directed the authorities to not only achieve the goal set by him to reduce the travel time from six to five hours between two longest points in the state, he also asked them to plant trees on both sides of the roads as Shershah Suri, the 16th century administrator and the founder of the Sur dynasty, had done along the Grand Trunk Road.

Tejaswi Yadav, in his brief speech, thanked the Chief Minister for trusting him with big responsibilities and promised to live up to the expectations of the people of Bihar.
