Subway breached by Gai river restored

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Sept 30 � The subway breached by the Gai River at Gainadi area about a week back, was restored today by the Border Roads Organisation (BRO) facilitating restoration of the road communication link between Silapathar, Jonai areas of Dhemaji district and the East and West Siang districts of Arunachal Pradesh with the rest of the country.

The subway was breached by the Gai River on September 24. The BRO built the subway following the Gai washing away a portion of the NH-52 in the Gainadi area on August 15 last.

Informing this, sources in the Dhemaji district administration told this newspaper this evening that the heavy vehicles stranded in the Gainadi area for the past several days, could cross the area using the restored subway in their journey towards Silapathar, Jonai and East and West Siang areas.

These areas have been facing shortage of essential items for the past few days due to the damage caused to the subway by the Gai river. However, a thin line of supply of essential items has been maintained to these areas, carrying essential items from Dibrugarh using the Brahmaputra river route from Dibrugarh, sources said.
