By Accommodation Times News Service

The Himachal government would contemplate having a resident engineer for all the major complexes of the state for maintenance of buildings and other infrastructure most likely through outsourcing basis, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said on September 19.

He was speaking after launching the Facebook and Twitter for Quality Control Cell of the Chief Minister’s Office. 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 stormwater drains, cables, piping because lack of these leads to sub-soil moisture, frequent disruption and haphazard construction etc.

He said that proper stabilization 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 blacktop. Thus effective steps should be taken for construction and maintenance of proper cross drainage and side drainage, he added.
