ROING, Sep 1: Chief Minister Pema Khandu on Friday inspected the construction of 300 metre Deopani Bridge over Eze River, which is being constructed by 752 BRTF under Project Udayak at 2 km point on Roing-Hunli road.
The Chief Minister in his interaction with the BRTF officials asked them to complete the project on time. He said the bridge is the lifeline for Dibang Valley district and upper areas of Lower Dibang Valley. He said its untimely completion has caused undue harassment to the commuters.
The BRTF officials informed that the bridge was taken over from a private company in 2008, after which they have geared up the works. They assured that the bridge will be completed by September 25 this year, much ahead of the scheduled date of the completion.
Further, they informed that concreting work will finish by September 7, which will be followed by load testing of the bridge on the 15th.
The Chief Minister also surveyed the flood situation in Eze River.
Local MLA Mutchu Mithi informed the Chief Minister about the recurring flood in Eze, which poses grave danger to the entire Roing Township during rainy season.
The Chief Minister was accompanied by state BJP President Tapir Gao, Art & Culture Minister Dr Mohesh Chai, WRD Parliamentary Secretary Gum Tayeng, Roing MLA Mutchu Mithi and Hayuliang MLA Dasanglu Pul, besides Roing DC Deepak Shinde, Roing SP Sanjay Sain and 752 BRTF Commander Kishore Kumar.
