Arunachal Pradesh Governor J P Rajkhowa urged the Border Roads Organization (BRO) to maintain road communication in the state at any cost. The Governor’s observation came when BRO’s Additional Director General (East) S S Porwal called on him at Raj Bhawan here and discussed roads under the BRO and their progress in the state.
The Governor emphasized that in the interest of the people of the frontier state and nation road communication must be maintained at all cost, ‘BRO must have pre-deployment of their resources, both men and machines‘ he said.
Sharing his experience at Lumla in Tawang district the governor stressed that BRO must maintain the border roads on regular basis and must be taken up on top priority.
He further pointed that many roads in the state were damaged due to lack or improper construction of drains, ‘The slopes near the roads are very steep, resulting in landslides, which in turn block the road communication. At times, it is found that retention walls are not constructed in proper and scientific manner.’
He suggested for sky bridge or tunneling in the landslide zones areas.
The governor also enquired about the Siku Bridge near Mebo in East Siang district to which the ADG informed that the work is sanctioned and permanent solution would be there before monsoon this year.
