Proposed widening of NH6 is causing concern for tigers.

If widened the NH6 passing through Bazargaonon Amravati Road poses threat to wild animals, illegal brick kilns on revenue land surrounding forest areas of Katlabodi in Kalmeshwar range are not far behind in endangering the tigers.
There are at least nine illegal brick kilns in Nagpur (Rural) in Kalmeshwar, where there is regular movement of resident population of 4-5 tigers. Some tigers even share Katlabodi territory with Bor Tiger Reserve (BTR). These tigers are grown-up cubs of dominant Katlabodi tigress re-released in the wild in February 2011.
