BISWANATH CHARIALI, Aug 12 - The National Highway 15 has been playing a pivotal role from the communication point of view in northern Assam. It also connects the most important Indo-China border and Arunachal Pradesh with the rest of the country. In fact, the highway can be termed as the �life line� of this part of the country.

But lately, the pathetic condition of the highway has forced the people here to suffer. It may be mentioned here that the National Highway 15 from Uriamgaon, Nagaon to Solengi, Gohpur portion was handed over to the National Highway Infrastructure Development Corporation Limited, New Delhi by the National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) on March 31 this year for converting it into a four-lane road and accordingly, two private firms were reportedly entrusted the job of four-laning. However, the lackadaisical attitude of the concerned authorities has led to the poor condition of the road. At several places, the road is full of big potholes, while at some other places, cracks have appeared. Particularly, from Biswanath Chariali to Chatia, from Jamugurihat to Nagshanker, Kusumtola (from THB College point to Endi Farm), Bedeti, Purupbari, Ratowa, among others, the condition has become unimaginable. During the rainy period, water fills up in the potholes, making the latter invisible. As a result, the number of accidents has gone up in recent times, injuring many.

The condition of the bridges over some of the major rivers along the highway is also the same. The bridges over the Borgang and the Buroi rivers are posing a serious threat to the life of the commuters. Large cracks have appeared in the said bridges. The affected people have urged the authorities to pay heed to their woes.
