Mishra emphasizes on strengthening rural road connectivity

This is indeed a goodnews for the people of Vijoynagar. Particularly, I like the Governor’s advise: “He advised the officers that road projects must be planned for long term use and care must be taken for its durability and robustness.”
We need roads that will run for decades, not just a season. Hope concerned authorities will take concerted effort.

Mishra emphasizes on strengthening rural road connectivity

ITANAGAR, Jul 15: Governor BD Mishra has emphasized on strengthening rural road connectivity to bring development and prosperity in every corner of the state.
Presiding over a high-level meeting on road connectivity with special reference to 157-km Miao-Vijoynagar road at Raj Bhavan today, the governor said concerted effort is needed to expedite the construction of Miao-Vijoynagar road.
He advised the senior officials of the Rural Works department to be ready to go into the details of each project and work with the anticipation to remove any cause of delay in road construction work.
As socio-economic development of the rural communities, particularly agrarian community and entrepreneurs in horticulture depends, inter alia, on the availability of good road, the concerned officers must take up rural connectivity in a mission mode. Availability of good road is for the welfare of the people and it adds to national security, Mishra said.
He advised the officers that road projects must be planned for long term use and care must be taken for its durability and robustness.
Due to the difficult terrain and climate, if conventional methods of road construction are not feasible, the implementing agencies must use alternative latest technologies to have good roads in the state, he said.
RWD minister Honchun Ngandam, Urban Development and Civil Supplies minister Kamlung Mosang, Principal chief conservator of forests Lalramthanga, RWS secretary Kapa Kholie, RWD chief engineer Doli Nyodu and executive engineer M Rike were present in the meeting.
