There is less of dislocation of normal life now and people in erstwhile united Adilabad district, especially in Adilabad and Kumram Bheem Asifabad, no longer seem to shudder at the prospect of long spells of rainfall, like the current one. The situation has improved quite significantly over the years, more so under the present government, which has given top priority to rural connectivity.
The old roads in disrepair have been replaced by new ones and the low-level bridges over hill streams have given way to high-level structures. But for a couple of mandals in KB Asifabad district, there are no reports of villages being cut off due to stream flooding access roads or someone being washed away in swollen streams or rivers. This is a mighty turnaround when compared with similar situations so far in this century.
The experience during the 2013 monsoon had the then Collector, Babu Ahamed, come up with proposals to construct high level bridges at all important locations as the existing low level causeways and road dams had become obsolete.

He had even prepared an elaborate plan for all-round development of the district then. The conditions have become far better now as the present government has given reuired thrust to rural connectivity. Roads have improved in almost all mandals and people face less logisticial problems.
The government constructed as many 30 high level bridges on the Utnoor-Asifabad road in addition to replacing the ones at Tonkini in Sirpur (T) which was a cause of frequent disruptions in flow of traffic to the eastern mandals of KB Asifabad. Bridges were also constructed in the interior mandals like Narnoor which has its villages well connected with the mandal head quarter or other important towns in the agency areas.
