Construction Worker Stumbles Across 100-foot Long Dinosaur Fossil

Industry captains feel that if immediate steps are not taken to streamline the availability of sand, the construction industry may well go the mining way. The ban on sand mining in Goa and restrictions placed by the Karnataka government on the transportation of sand to Goa has led to the scarcity of this fundamental construction material and escalation of its price, thus severely hitting the construction industry in Goa. And it’s not just the private developers’ projects that have been adversely affected by the sand shortage. Sources in the South Goa district administration informed that the most of the projects funded through the MPLAD scheme are also witnessing cost and time overruns. Acknowledging the problem, South Goa district collector, N D Agrawal, said that he has asked his engineers to explore alternatives for sand and seek innovative solutions. “For instance, crushed stone powder could be used in place of sand for laying interlocking pavers. Solutions can also be found by technical experts to use alternative materials to sand for construction,” Agrawal said.
