This was informed by the General Secretary of the Nongpoh Town Committee, Rayonald Kharkamni after a meeting with Sunil Sharma, DGM (Technical), NHAI, RO Guwahati on Thursday.
Kharkamni said that, NTC and UTD is deeply concerned over the delay on the part of the NHAI to implement the proposals of the two town bodies for widening of side-drains, construction of foot over bridge and traffic police booth at various locations as agreed upon in the joint inspection held earlier this year along with officials of NHAI and the local legislator of Umsning Constituency.
‘Therefore, as responsible leaders which looks after the welfare of the people of Nongpoh and Umsning town, we have decided to jointly meet the official concerned of the NHAI to urge him for speedy implementations of our proposals for the safety of the people, the daily commuters and especially the school children’ Kharkamni said.
Kharkamni also said that since the rainy season is almost a few weeks away, therefore, widening of side-drains to prevent flash floods especially in Nongpoh town areas is the need of the hour. ‘We have witnessed severe flash floods earlier this year, causing difficulties to the general public and also triggering traffic snarls on NH-6 in Nongpoh areas’ Kharkamni lamented.
However, while expressing happiness over the outcome of the meeting, Kharkamni informed that the DGM of NHAI, RO Guwahati has given them an assurance that tendering of the projects as proposed by the NTC and UTD will be initiated as soon as the Model Code of Conduct of the Lok Sabha Elections is over.
