Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Monday inaugurated the Assam Medical College and Hospital(AMCH) link road connecting NH37 in Dibrugarh.

The 1.626 km long road has been improved and widened with a project cost of Rs 442.32 lakh under City Infrastructure Development Fund by PWD Dibrugarh, Lahoal, Moran and Tingkhong Regional Roads Sub-Division, Dibrugarh.

“During our tenure, we have inaugurated three bridges over Brahmaputra river and five more bridges will be built over Brahmaputra river to ease the communication,” he added.

“The centre has already given node for the construction for the proposal of five bridges over Brahmaputra river,” Sonowal further said.

The inauguration function was attended by Union Minister Rameswar Teli, MLAs Prashanta Phukan, Teros Gowala, Rituparna Baruah, tea planter Manoj Jalan and other dignitaries.
