Pedestrians taking a trip from Sinquerim to Mapusa can chart their journey along the footpath that now connects Fort Aguada to Mapusa said calangute MLA Michael lobo
Lobo was Speaking to reporters at Parra after launching beautification work of a pond at Almeida waddo on Wednesday,
Calangute MLA Michael Lobo said work on the missing footpath stretch from Nagoa to Parra is nearing completion, while the Sinquerim-Calangute stretch is ready.
“Only the footpath from Nagoa to St Alex Church at Calangute is pending, after which we will take up the remaining stretch,” Lobo said.
He said that as the Calangute-Mapusa road has now become the busiest street in North Goa after Mopa airport commenced operations, there was a need to improve it.
“We are widening and improving the road, making it one-way with a divider wherever possible. A lot of people have sacrificed their land for road widening. With this, we have also asked the electricity department to make a provision for underground power cabling from Mapusa to the Nagoa substation. The roadside water pipeline is also being shifted at some places,” he said.
The existing narrow bridge at the Nagoa-Parra junction is also being widened with a parallel road, he added.
The pond at Almeida waddo is the third water body to be taken up for beautification.
