The Arunachal Pradesh Government has come up with a new scheme for developing all roads under the Public Works Department in the State.
As per latest official reports, all roads under the PWD will be developed under a five-year plan, which is the Chief Minister’s Comprehensive State Road Plan 2019-24.
Under the plan, important inter-State and inter-district roads will be developed to the specification of State highways.
All the arterial roads in the district headquarters and ADC headquarters will be connected by the major district road category and majority of the ADC and CO headquarters will be connected by the all-weather other district road category by the year 2024.
According to the official reports, in the rural communication sector, Arunachal Pradesh has covered 1,099 habitations with a road length of 7,942 km under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana scheme so far and it plans to cover 204 unconnected habitations having a length of 3,500 km this year.
The Government will provide support for the repair and maintenance of already completed roads under such programmes.
