 SHILLONG: A high-level meeting chaired by Home Minister Roshan Warjri has set September 20 as the deadline for the PWD to submit estimates for the beautification of Motphran junction.

The meeting was also attended by Urban Affairs Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh along with Deputy Commissioner Sanjay Goyal, Superintendent of Police M Kharkrang, officials from PWD, Urban Affairs and Shillong Municipal Board.

The senior Government officials articulated the need to do away with the old over-bridge at Motphran since it poses imminent dangers to passers-by.

Warjri, who is also the local MLA, said that as part of the beautification drive, the public toilet below the bridge will also be shifted.

Widening of roads is also planned at Motphran to maintain a proper rotary.

“We hope that after the PWD submits the plan estimates, we can ask the Government for the sanction of the amount so that the beautification of the area can be completed in the early part of next year,” Warjri said.

Warjri also informed that strategies to be adopted to ease congestion and garbage disposal in and around the junction and GS Road were also discussed in the meeting.
