Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Pema Khandu on Monday said road communication has always been a priority for his government and all the internal roads of all the administrative headquarters across the State will be improved within the next five years.

Khandu was addressing the people after inaugurating the 16 m RCC bridge over Yagamso stream at F sector in Itanagar.

Also present among others was Itanagar legislator Techi Kaso.

The chief minister said the opening of the bridge comes as a huge relief in easing traffic congestion in the state capital.

He said the bridge will ease traffic congestion on NH-415 between R K Mission Hospital to Bank Tinali with alternate route opening of the southern ring road traffic from RKM hospital to Zero point.

The chief minister appreciated the state public works department for completing the work two months ahead from the target date of completion.

Khandu said said in the coming days to ease traffic congestion, alternate route through ESS sector here will also be opened by March 2020.

The traffic along that route had been shut due to the landslide, on which work has already been started, he informed.

He further informed that Rs 100 crore has been placed for improvement of all sectorial roads in the state capital region.

“Work to improve road communication is going on full swing despite only few months of working season available due to monsoon,” the chief minister said.
