Arunachal Pradesh has sought the intervention of the Union Transport Ministry for early completion of the Potin-Pangin stretch of the Trans-Arunachal Highway and various other road projects in the state.

Arunachal Deputy Chief Minister Chowna Mein, accompanied by Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju recently called on Union Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari at New Delhi and apprised him of the deteriorating condition of the Potin-Pangin portion of the highway and the need for its early completion.

The Trans-Arunachal Highway covers 1,559 km and extends from Tawang in western part to Kanubari in the east.

While discussing the terminated projects of SARDP-NE (Special Accelerated Rural Development Project for North East) namely Lalpul-Manmao-Changlang road, Mein informed the Union minister that in a meeting earlier on July 12, it was decided to allow one-month time to the original contractor for mobilizing the work and if the contractor fails to comply the Ministry has agreed to re-tender the balance work.

Mein also raised the issue of Longding-Tissa-Khonsa road to which the ministry has agreed to re-tender the balance work after placing the proposal before the next high powered committee (HPC).

With regard to the double lining of Khonsa-Hukanjuri road along NH-315A (35 Km), the ministry informed that the land assessment estimate of Hukanjuri- Khonsa is being considered for sanction provided the state government agrees to 2.5 percent administrative charges as requested by the ministry.
