Bauxite mining to begin after road laying

Special Correspondent

VISAKHAPATNAM: Bauxite mining in the Visakha Agency area would commence only after the four-lane road being laid to transport the ore to the aluminium refinery at Makavarapalem was completed, Collector Sanjay Kumar said here on Friday.

Expansion work

Work on expansion of the existing road, from Jerrela to Tallapalem on the National Highway for a length of over 100 km, has commenced.

Survey

The road touches Makavarapalem where the refinery would come up and by-pass roads would be laid at Chintapalli and Narsipatnam.

Survey work is on and permission from the Union Ministry of Forests and Environment has been obtained to expand the road in the forest area.

Mining

“Mining will start only after the road is completed and it will take about an year to complete the road work,” Mr. Sanjay Kumar told reporters.

The State government was competent to lay roads anywhere it wanted, he said.
