  • Enhancement of the Administrative and Financial powers of various BRO executives to reduce the planning time.
  • Adoption of new technologies to enhance the pace of road construction.
  • Procurement of new and modern equipment and construction plants for road construction.
  • Adoption of EPC mode of construction.
  • Increased availability of air effort.
  • Pre & Post road safety audit of roads in Area of Responsibility (AoR) of BRO.

Maintenance of roads is carried out as per authorised scale of maintenance. Resurfacing is being done as per renewal cycle fixed to keep the roads traffic worthy.
