Tripura government to build rain-proof rural roads using nanotechnology

Published on July 29, 2022
Current Context: Considering the heavy rainfall, Tripura government will use nanotechnology for building rain-proof rural roads.
  • Rs 214.23 crore is approved by the Ministry of Rural Development for the construction of 32 roads covering 231.64 km under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY-III). Nanotechnology will be used for the construction of 16 roads of 114.23 km.
  • Since the state receives heavy rainfall, nanotechnology is used to construct rural roads. Generally, roads are constructed using chips and bitumen, which get damaged within a few years.
  • Under nanotechnology, roads will be turned into solid concrete structures by using cement and chemicals. The roads constructed with nanotechnology will last longer.
  • To achieve better quality and durability the state will adopt the Full Depth Reclamation(FDR) mechanism, a fully mechanized system for the construction of roads under PMGSY-III.
  • PMGSY-III focuses on the consolidation of the existing rural road network by upgrading the routes and rural links that connect habitations with agriculture, rural markets, educational institutions, and hospitals.
  • Among the 32 roads to be constructed, four will be in North Tripura, eight in Khowai, six in South Tripura, eleven in West Tripura, and one in Dhalai.
  • Static Knowledge :
    • CM of Tripura - Manik Saha
    • Governor of Tripura - Satyadeo Narain Arya
