Work of phase I, phase II of mining corridor will be re-tendered in 3 months: Cabral

CURCHOREM: Tension erupted at Tilamol-Quepem, on Monday morning, following a verbal clash between the supporters of Mission Bypass and truck owners.
Curchorem MLA Nilesh Cabral had called on the supporters of Mission Bypass on Monday morning at Tilamol.
The supporters of Mission Bypass are agitating for the last one month demanding construction of mining corridor and stoppage of ore transportation, following the death of two women in an accident involving a mining truck at the Tilamol junction.
Cabral was accompanied by the CCMC chairperson Vishwas Dessai, councillors, Xeldem and Assolda sarpanchas, panchayat members and others.
The Curchorem MLA informed the protestors that the construction work of phase I of mining corridor from Guddemol to Capxem and phase II from Ugem to Guddemol will be re-tendered within three months.
He said that he has proposed a flyover to the Chief Minister, and it is under consideration.
The convenor of Mission Bypass Pradip Kakodkar said that the core committee will discuss the suggestions put forth by Curchorem MLA and decide on the further course of action.
Till that time the ore transportation should not be started, he stressed.
The secretary of South Goa Progressive Truck Owner Association Cajiton Fernandes said that the demand for the construction of a bypass road is being made since 2002.
“Several meetings were held with the government. We are left with no income for the last four years and nobody thinks about our condition,” he said demanding that the construction of bypass may be made at the earliest. The crowd disappeared after the discussion.
