The Road to Success : Fomento completes Capxem jetty link in record time
In a landmark development, Fomento Resources completed the construction of a vital link road to the Capxem jetty in South Goa, in just 76 days (22nd July to 5th October 2010). This link road is an important contribution by the Alliance for smooth transportation of ore to the Capxem jetty. The stable movement of trucks along the smooth road will ensure zero spillage of ore.
The road to Capxem jetty is an important artery to mineral development areas such as Dharbandora, Savordem, Ponda and Cuddegal. Trucks leaving these areas load ore onto barges at the Capxem jetty for onward river transportation.
The Alliance has sustained its efforts towards improving its areas of operations. In 2007, it strengthened 150 metres of the road in partnership with other companies. In 2010, it responded to the need of the local community and completed the road in record time.
The Alliance deployed a civil supervisor, ten supervisors and a hundred labourers to complete it in record time.
Mr TS Rao of Fomento Resources, who supervised the operations, conveyed: “The road will ensure that there is no water logging in the monsoons. Moreover the villagers will get a proper approach road which will be clean”
