Talking to media persons after inspectiing the project on Sunday, Minister Mahaseth said the project would be handed to the government by completing it within May 30.
“I don’t want to go through the past, but be sure if contractors failed to accomplish the target by that time, they have to face music,” he stressed.
According to him, 18 bridges would be constructed along the road while contracts for 4 bridges have been already done.
