It took a horrific accident to force the administration into action. And the after the initial noise that there as a problem with the land acquisition, the North Goa Collector R Menaka clarified that the land was already acquired.

Also that there was no piece of land embroiled in any litigation. Locals allege and sources within government itself say that  there was lack of urgency in the administration to start doing anything at Chimbel. 

 On Thursday, a tanker had ploughed into 7 vehicles, smashing them to smithereens. One person was killed and 1 seriously injured. 8 persons were injured. The previous day a tanker trailor had overturned. Luckily nobody was injured.

The PWD had been regularly requested by the police and the locals to rectify this issue. But nothing was done till the death of a commuter and the subsequent backlash forced this response.  The collector also spoke about the immediate measures that they had taken  as of now.

 Locals also visited the chief minister and submitted a memorundum.  A site inspection took place early on Friday.
