Meeting on road construction held

AALO, 20 Jun: West Siang Deputy Commissioner Penga Tato convened a meeting here on Monday to discuss Packages 8 and 9 of the road work undertaken by the SRK and the TTC companies.

The Galo Youth Organisation had in February this year served an ultimatum to the companies to ensure early completion of the two-lane road in Aalo township.

Representing the companies, Pobin Padu informed about the problems being faced by the companies. He said that “most of the culverts and drains have been completed,” adding that “the rains disturbed the laying of bitumen in Aalo township and the four-laning of township area is under consideration at the ministry of road transport & highways.”

He gave assurance that he would “highlight the problems faced by the company to the public of Aalo within a short period.”

Among others, the meeting was attended by Aalo SDO Henkir Lollen, EAC Maryom Karlo, members of the Galo Youth Organisation’s Aalo Unit, and

engineers from the SRK and the TTC companies. (DIPRO)
