Goa's Cavelossim locals demand 8 m wide bypass road

In Goa's Cavelossim village, the gram sabha unanimously adopted a resolution that the width of the proposed bypass road from near the under-construction Assolna-Cavelossim bridge to Xirro, Carmona, should not be more that 8 m, instead of 30 m that the villagers claimed to have been planned. Gram sabha members pointed out that the 30 m wide road would result in the village losing its rural character and insisted that the width of the road should be restricted to a maximum of 8 m.

The bypass road has been proposed to avoid congestion. Further, the gram sabha also adopted a resolution that the access roads to the beaches shown by the starred resorts in the village in their property plans, be opened for the public. Villagers, participating in the discussion, expressed their ire over the restrictions imposed by the hotels on using the access roads on the locals.
