National Highways Authority of India chairman Deepak Kumar has directed his team of officials to strictly monitor the road conditions and ensure quick rectification of the damaged stretches.
Kumar has laid emphasis on taking stern action against independent engineers showing laxity and delaying repair work of the highways.
Reports say that after drawing criticism, NHAI has stepped up efforts to ensure that national highways are of good quality, safe, reliable, comfortable for road users and are maintained timely.
Project directors have been directed to take pro-active action under the provisions of the Concession Agreement related to projects being operated by the concessionaire.
In case of the public funded projects (non-PPP Projects) where the O&M obligations is the direct responsibility of NHAI, the project directors have been asked to periodically inspect such highways to ensure that the highway is in traffic worthy condition and conforms to the maintenance requirements.
The field officials are also being encouraged to take corrective action so that adequate maintenance is done on these projects.
