The objective of India’s rural roads project, Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY) is to support the expansion and maintenance of all-season rural access roads, resulting in enhanced road connectivity to rural areas. This creates economic opportunities and social services for beneficiary communities in the participating states.
Suresh Chandra Sahu based in Phulbani district, deep inside Odisha, was involved in road project of 15 km long, under PMGSY scheme to connect interior rural areas. The site being far away from any quarry, cost of transportation of crushed stone for granular sub-base (GSB) was huge. Sahu was interested in an MB crusher bucket as stone was readily available near the site on both sides of the road, as it passes through a hilly region. BF90.3 crusher bucket, suitable for excavators starting from 21 tonne, was an attractive proposal for the customer, since crushing the stones directly on site and immediatly re-using it, he can really save a huge amount of transportation costs.
