Itagar, March 30: Aruchal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Chow Mein has instructed the district administration to clear all the obstructing things like uuthorized building construction and earth-cutting on hill sides, dumping of building materials or debris along the highway to facilitate smooth construction of the 10.90- km stretch of the four-lane highway from Chandragar (Itagar) to Papu llah.
The Deputy Chief Minister, while reviewing the progress of the works of the 4-laning of NH-415 here Thursday night, asked the maging director of M/S TK Engineering Consortium Private Limited to expedite the construction works and build retaining walls in landslide-prone areas before the onset of the monsoon to prevent any untoward incident, an official release stated on Friday.
After knowing that the compensation for the ‘unsafe’ structures located in the vulnerable places had already been made, Mein instructed the Capital Complex DC to issue ‘fil notices’ to the owners of such structures and buildings to immediately vacate those structures.
He said that the government would not be held responsible if any untoward incidents happen to persons staying in such unsafe structures and buildings.
Mein also instructed the DC to issue ‘notices’ against the uuthorized building construction, earth-cutting and dumping of building materials or debris by private individuals, stating that such activities not only hinder the construction of the 4-lane highway, but are also dangerous as the hills and mud becomes loose and vulnerable to landslide.
He asked the DC to regulate car parking along NH-415 from Chandragar to Raj Bhawan road so that the construction activities are carried out smoothly. During the meeting, other constraints hindering the speedy execution of the project work were also discussed. The Deputy Chief Minister instructed the departments concerned to immediately shift the electric poles, telephone poles, water pipelines and OFC cables from the construction corridor of the highway.
