The Border Roads Organization (BRO) began to repair an 18 km stretch of road in Mizoram’s Mamit district just a week after locals volunteered to complete the project.
According to The Hindu report, residents of the villages between Dapchhuah and West Phaileng allegedly waited a year for the BRO’s Project Pushpak to repair the concerned section.
In a statement received by the villagers on October 28, the BRO emphasized its commitment to repair the damaged stretch, noting that the Mamit district experienced incessant rainfall, adversely affecting almost all local roads along the region.
As per the project’s Chief Engineer – S.P. Kolipey, “Project Pushpak of BRO started repairing works on priority and took measures to minimize the damage.”
He said that the work on the entire stretch will soon complete to improve the socio-economic condition and enable smooth transportation for the villagers.
The BRO remarked that the specifications of the damaged stretch raised to higher standards than what was planned in the previous contract.
