New bridges to facilitate road connectivity

By Correspondent

TEZPUR, Nov 6 - People of the northern belt will soon be able to enjoy hassle-free surface communication as soon as the ongoing construction work of four lane project from Dibrugarh via Koliabar-Chariali bordering Sonitpur district and Dolabari and Jamuguri etc., areas up to Dhemaji, connecting the northern and southern belts and the neighbouring State of Arunachal Pradesh is completed. Besides, a few major bridges including an additional bridge over river Brahmaputra at Koliabhomora area and Chowkighat is also slated to get completed as the National Highway Infrastructure Development Authority (NHIDA) has already released the required funds specially sanctioned for the big-budget project.

It is worth mentioning that due to the gradual increase of traffic volume and the dilapidated condition of NH 15 and 37 (A), motorists and common people have been facing a slew of problems, besides witnessing frequent road accidents in the last few years. More importantly, hundreds of Lakhimpur or Dhemaji-bound vehicles plying from either Guwahati or from any part of upper Assam have to touch Tezpur town, compounding its traffic problems. But the administration here hopes that as soon as this four lane project is completed, people will get respite from the traffic problem besides better communication, which will also result in the socio-economic development of the region.

Addressing a press conference recently, the Deputy Commissioner, Sonitpur, Manoj Kumar Deka revealed that the funding agency National Highway Infrastructure Development Authority (NHIDA), of the Government of India has already released an amount of Rs 2,68.40 crore for the project. �The work is on in full swing and the inhabitants who have lost their properties for the ongoing construction work have been paid their compensation under the Fair-Compensation Act.� The Deputy Commissioner added that in Jamuguri and Gohpur-Tammanna Gaon areas, a problem in connection with releasing of lands occupied by the locality stood as a constraint, but that has also been settled. He also urged the people to extend their helping hand for the early completion of the big budget project. However, replying to a query regarding discrimination in giving compensation in some areas, he said that though such questions did arise, but it was settled as per government norms.
