Arunachal Chief Minister Pema Khandu has expressed total dismay over the slow pace of construction of NH-415 from Papu Nallah to Nirjuli where work has been going on for the four-laning of the highway.

Chief Minister Khandu held a review meeting and said that the ‘dismally slow’ construction process of the four-lane highway stretch is causing extreme inconvenience to commuters.

The Chief Minister directed the concerned officials to immediately expedite the work without compromising on quality.

Expressing concern over the damages caused by heavy rains in Itanagar and adjoining areas, CM Khandu instructed the departments concerned to immediately undertake repair works, especially on the highway to ensure smooth flow of traffic and to prevent any disruption to people’s routines.
