IMPHAL, June 6 - The Union Ministry of Road Transport has given the nod to construct three footbridges here as part of a road safety drive as well as to ease the increasing volume of traffic in the State capital.

According to official sources at the State Public Works Department, the footbridges will be constructed in front of the main LIC office building, on the Bir Tikendrajit Road and in the Keishampat locality.

Besides, the three traffic islands located at Chingmeirong Khongnang Ani Karak, the western gate of the Kangla Fort and in front of the Raj Bhavan here will be modified for better traffic flow. The Central Ministry has sanctioned a sum of Rs 18.36 crore for this purpose, the State PWD sources added.

The State PWD is also planning to construct two more footbridges near the Raj Bhavan and the Imphal College.

Once these proposed footbridges are constructed and the three traffic islands are improved, road safety measures and other traffic regulation activities can be taken up in a more effective manner, said a PWD official. After the Centre�s approval, the necessary tender process for the works has been initiated, he added.
