Almost all villages in the Melghat area have been connected with road network. Some roads have been tarred. Therefore, in fair season communication is easy barring internal roads which are either murum or earthen roads. However in rainy season some of these roads get washed away at the cross drainages when the streams running across them are in spate. This renders some of the roads difficult to tread and consequently, some portion of the Reserve becomes inaccessible during rainy season. In Melghat wireless network has been strengthened from time to time. Illegal tree cutting has increased to some extent due to the increased road network. It has posed danger to wildlife also, as threat perception for illicit trade in wild animals and their products has increased. Check gates and barriers have been installed and made operational on all entry points to the Reserve with a view to regulate the entry of visitors and also keep a check on illegal and suspicious intruders in the area.
