Lowairpoa highway closed down after engineer's order

 

Agartala,28May,2016:The national highway in Lowairpoa area of Assam was closed down after an executive engineer called for its closure due to bad condition of it. AK Chakraborty, an excecutive engineer with PWD department appointed in the region, issued an order to close NH 44 in the region. The road connects Tripura with the rest of the nation through Assam. The question that arises is if closing down a highway in power of an executive engineer? Allegedly, a few police personnels are using this oppurtunity to bribe away the money from commuters. They charge a certain amount of money to allow the commuters to use the road. Lowairpoa is located 17 kms east of  Tripura border and NH 44 is one of the few ways to reach the other side of the country. Commuters from Mizoram, Meghalaya, lower part of Assam and Tripura are heavily dependant on this highway. However, its condition is terrible in Salgoi, Pathar Kandi area and Lowairpoa region. Heavy rainfall in the region is the reason for this damage. Nevertheless, maintainence of the highway is poor. National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) is the nodal agency responsible for building, upgrading and maintainence of highways. It operates under the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.
