Deputy Chief Minister, Chowna Mein inspected the ongoing construction work of approach road to Sisar (Sisiri) Bridge from Aohali Village along NH-52 (East Siang portion) which is a part of Trans-Arunachal Highway on his way to attend the fourth edition of OFAM 2017 at Dambuk today.
He asked the National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited, General Manager, Vivek Srivastav to expedite the construction works. He stressed that this portion of road is vital for inter-linking the districts in the eastern sectors. He was astonished to see that how a short span bridge over Sisar river could not be completed even after 10 years in execution where as the long bridge over Dibang is set to finish within 4-5 years.
He asked Deputy Commissioners of both East Siang and Lower Dibang Valley Districts to expedite and complete the land acquisition process as early as possible for immediate construction of the approach road on both sides of the bridge.
Vivek Srivastav, GM NHIDCL inform that earth cutting for 1 km portion of the approach road to Bridge is still left and expansion work of road from Aohali Village and approach road from Dambuk will be started as soon as the land acquisition is completed.
