Trip to Madhya Pradesh_16.02.10

I went to India for a meeting in Nagpur and to visit my project site in Madhya Pradesh, with my colleague Haji Anuar Aris. We left KLIA on 16th February 2010 by MAS and arrived in Delhi about 11.00 p.m. The next day we caught an Indigo Airline flight to Nagpur by 9.00 a.m.

After a day in Nagpur, we proceeded to Seoni to visit our project site. Our project involves the rehabilitation and upgrading to four lanes of Lakhnadon to Border Section from km 596.750 to km 653.225 of National Highway-7 in the state of Madhya Pradesh. The interesting part of the project is that the road transverses a 20 km stretch which is part of Pench Tiger forest reserve region. Our Team Leader supervising the construction of the Highway is a Malaysian, Mr. Roy and is assisted by a team of Indian Engineers and Technicians.
