Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said the state government would contemplate to have resident engineer for all the major complexes of the state for maintenance of buildings and other infrastructure most likely through outsource basis.

He was speaking after launching the Facebook and Twitter for Quality Control Cell of the Chief Minister’s Office here on Wednesday.

The Quality Control Team also made major recommendations for ensuring proper construction of various developmental projects in the State.

The Chief Minister said that land use plan and master plan needed to be prepared for construction of all the major projects. He said appropriate arrangements should be made for storm water drains, cables, piping because lack of these lead to sub-soil moisture, frequent disruption and haphazard construction etc.

He said that proper stabilisation of roads must be ensured as improper sub-soil stabilization leads to oozing of water and damage to the roads and lack of slope stabilization also lead to frequent landslides resulting in erosion of black top. Thus effective steps should be taken for construction and maintenance of proper cross drainage and side drainage, he added.

Thakur said that during mettaling of roads, best quality of aggregate and sand should be used and quality of bitumen must also be ensured.
