Transport and Connectivity


Road development in Jammu & Kashmir is important, given the terrain of the State and limited development of alternate means of transportation. A well- developed network of roads is necessary not only for the economic development of the State but for its social, political and cultural development. It is required to exploit the rich natural wealth of the State, to develop indigenous industries, to explore new markets for its products and to promote tourism. To this effect the State government has been focusing on construction of new roads, maintenance and upgradation of already existing roads, construction of bridges and culverts and connecting villages with a network of roads. It remains the endeavour of the Department to construct ecofriendly and cost effective Government buildings. Major thrust is being given to the schemes envisaging road connectivity in-accessible and difficult areas for equitable development of the State. The department also extends technical support to other departments besides acting as executing agency.

Road length maintained by PW(R&B) Department has enhanced from 18368 kms in 2007-08 to 31921 kms during 2013-14 (ending March, 2014). The province wise details of the road length (2013-14) are given as under:-

A brief resume of main programmes/schemes sanctioned by the State and Central Governments are given as under:-

CENTRAL ROAD FUND
Central Road Fund is a Central Scheme which is primarily focused for development of State Roads including Roads of Inter State Connectivity and Economic Importance.

FLAGSHIP PROGRAMME - PMGSY
The Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) is a flagship programme which was launched in Dec., 2000 in the country and also extended to J&K State in the same year. The objective of the PMGSY programme is to provide connectivity by way of all weather roads to the unconnected habitations in rural areas. Under Bharat Nirman Programme, it is envisaged to provide road connectivity to all the unconnected habitations in the country having population of more than 1000 souls as per census 2001 whereas in hilly states and desert areas the target is to provide connectivity with population size of 500 souls and above.

Presently, 2038 schemes at an estimated cost of Rs. 5486.14 Crore have been sanctioned under this programme in nine phases. An amount of Rs.2943.37 Crore has been released by GOI ending Jan, 2015 against which Rs.2952.93 Crore stands utilized. So far 1124 schemes have been completed with total road length of 5985 Kms covering 1676 habitations.
