Stress on Nagaland road connectivity

Nagaland Chief Minister TR Zeliang and his minister for National Highways, G Kaito Aye  called on Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari on Tuesday at New Delhi focussing the road connectivity in the north eastern state.

Accompanied by Chief Engineer, National Highways NE and Managing Director NHIDCL, the Chief Minister highlighted the urgency for resuming the 2-laning of 4 roads under phase 'A' of SARDP-NE whose DPR are at the verge of completion viz. 1. Longleng-Changtongya Road. 2. Mon-Tamlu-Merangkong raod. 3. Phek-Pfutsero road. 4. Zunheboto-Chakhabama road.

Gadkari promised full cooperation and an early sanction so that the firms selected can take off during this working season. Also giving credence to the appeal of the Chief Minister for the 4-laning project of Daboka-Dimapur and Kohima-Imphal road, the Union Minister committed that he would expedite the process for early commencement of work. 


    Considering the progress of Dimapur-Kohima 4-laning which is in full swing, it is important that  Daboka-Dimapur and Kohima-Imphal inter-state connectivity road projects commence work at an early date to boost trade, commerce and over-all economic growth. The DPR for these Projects are also nearing completion and works will be executed at the earliest.
