Dimapur, August 12: Chief Minister TR Zeliang today exuded confidence that traffic snarls and bad roads in Dimapur and Kohima will be a thing of the past one year from now with the Centre sanctioning new roads for the twin cities.

The Centre has sanctioned Rs 250 crores for city roads in Dimapur and Kohima. This is in fulfilment of the commitment made by Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Nitin Gadkari to develop city roads in Dimapur and Kohima during his visit to the State on November 4, 2015, said Zeliang.

Briefing media persons here at his private residence, Zeliang said the National Highways Authority of India had already floated tender for construction of 2-lane road from Golaghat (Assam) to Purana Bazar; and 4-lane road from Purana Bazar to Chumukedima. 

Hopefully, the works can be taken up by October, he said. 

The present over bridge near Hotel Tragopan would be dismantled and a new 2-lane over bridge constructed as part of the Golaghat-Purana Bazar 2-lane project, he informed.  

On the 4-lane Purana Bazaar-Chumukedima road, the CM said there is problem of land as the 4-lane road requires 120 feet (width) of land. He directed the DC Dimapur to check encroachment, so that the works could be taken up on time. 

Zeliang also informed that a 4-lane road from Khatkati (Assam) to Patkai has been sanctioned, while Rs 309 crores has been sanctioned for Kohima by-pass road from Niuland to Zhadima. 

The CM also informed that a 2-lane road from the check gate (before reaching Kohima) to Lerie has been sanctioned. 

It may be mentioned that the 4-lane works from Chumukedima to Kohima is in full swing and is likely to be completed within two years.
