Admin prohibits interference with RoW during maintenance

DAPORIJO, Dec 19: Upper Subansiri Deputy Commissioner Danish Ashraf on Wednesday directed the SDO here to issue an executive order prohibiting anyone from interfering with the right of way (RoW) of the Trans-Arunachal Highway (TAH) in the district during repair and maintenance work, and to take legal action against those who violate the order.
The DC gave the direction to SDO J Padung during a meeting here to review the repair and maintenance work on the highway from Sigin Bridge in Daporijo to Dumporijo, and from Dumporijo to Tai.
The contractors who attended the meeting highlighted the issues they face, such as local interference while clearing chocked culverts; earth-cutting by individuals causing drain blockage; and leakage of water from PHED pipelines at several locations.
They requested the administration to take necessary action for smooth execution of the work.
The DC also directed the superintendent of police to deploy CRPF and police personnel as and when required during the maintenance work.
Ashraf asked the contractors to increase their manpower and machinery to complete the maintenance work during the non-monsoon season, and to submit weekly reports on the work’s progress to the monitoring teams headed by the ADCs of Daporijo and Dumporijo.
The DC urged all stakeholders to coordinate and help in expediting the repair and maintenance work. (DIPRO)
