Arunachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein on Monday inaugurated the 80-metre span double lane Arch bridge over River Poma at Jollang with footpath and a 33.50-metre height protection wall at ESS sector.
The alternative road near ESS sector in Itanagar is a lifeline of the Capital Complex.
It was closed for the last two years.
It is believed that its re-opening would bring the much-needed respite to the commuters from traffic congestion during peak hours in the capital complex.
The deputy chief minister congratulated the PWD engineers, contractors and the denizens of the capital region on the completion of the arch bridge.
Mein said that despite various problems due to COVID-19, the inauguration of the bridge is a fine example of the Arunachal government, which has priorities set for the development of the state.
“We cannot stop our development activities due to the pandemic, we have to learn to live with COVID and carry on with our daily economic activities,” Mein said.
He also stressed on the need for the good execution of work and for ensuring quality is maintained in the various works taken up in the Capital Region.
“Itanagar is our capital and government will leave no stone unturned to fulfil the aspirations of people and ensure all-round development of the capital region,” he added.
