Shimla-parwnoo Highway

Taking notice of landslides blocking the roads and causing traffic jams, Himachal Pradesh government today directed the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) to keep Shimla-Parwanoo highway open round the clock during the ongoing apple season. Presiding over a meeting of all the government departments at Solan late last evening, Himachal chief secretary V C Pharka also instructed the NHAI to take into consideration the topography and geological conditions of the hilly state while carrying out the work on four laning of the highway. “Apple played an important role in the economy of the state and keeping in view the fact that maximum apple boxes are transported through Shimla-Parwanoo highway, it should remain open day and night,” he said. He also directed the authority to remove construction material unloaded on the roadside on the highway to avoid traffic jams and stressed that while carrying out the work on widening of the highway, it should be ensured that there was no loss to agricultural and other type of lands of the farmers.
