“Roads affect communication in Bhutan”
Communication has become so important to bring the world close together. But the country like ours suffers unavoidable barriers like pockets of scattered settlements, harsh terrain and weather. Nevertheless, we are slipping some of the things that are in our hand.
The recent issues of Rupee crunch, traffic congestion, increase in availing vehicle loan and fossil fuel price hike can be reduced by improving public transport services, which includes good and reliable routes.
1. Is there anything that government can do to speed up the widening of Trashigang-Samdrup Jongkhar high way without disturbing the normal traffic flow?
2. We are experiencing poor road quality and it is one of the feedbacks left by tourist visiting our country. The cause of such situation is not because of government spending less on roads, it is due to the poor maintenance work carried out
3. As we experience road accidents on rise, as always RSTA and traffic police blames on people’s negligence. Does that mean we can rule out poor quality and mechanical failure of cars from the list of causes of accident in our country?
4. Is there any guideline in place to control the quality of cars that are being tested only for plain areas before we import?
