Following the failure on the part of BRTF, the Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) undertook the task of BRTF in repairing a portion of NH-39 which remained as one of the most accident prone spot in the state capital.
The KMC deployed its excavator at the steep curve on the NH-39 located few distance before reaching the RIELIT institution, Lire colony by widening and straightening the road. Both KMC chairman Vipopal Kintso and deputy chairman Khriehu Liezietsu who took keen initiative with full cooperation from the land owner Yashitsungba Aier, personally monitored the work in the site Saturday.
Talking to Nagaland Post, KMC chairman Vipopal Kintso said the very spot due to its steep curve had witnessed several vehicular accidents in the past and continued to remain one of the most accident prone spot.
The BRTF which is maintaining the NH-39 however failed to take any initiative despite repeated request.
This has compelled the civic body to take up the job on its own for the safety and convenience of the general public, he said.
He also revealed that the BRTF officials were informed of the KMC initiatives and were invited to the site for discussion on Saturday.
However, to the utter dismay, the latter failed to respond and turned up to the site.
