Kohima’s Lower Chandmari colony was cut off when the road was affected by a major subsidence Thursday leading to suggestions for construction of an alternative road.
Chief engineer PWD (R&B) Er. Peter Solo accompanied by addl. C.E. chief engineer (R&B) T. Mero and Er. Longzo, on assessing site concluded that the only way to solve the problem of perennial slide is to construct a concrete structure at the bank of the stream in order to prevent further land slide.
Er. Peter Solo said that no amount of repair works on the stretch of the road would be durable except for emergency use and suggested a new route for the affected area. The visiting officials also went around the area and after survey, suggested a new route identified and which was found feasible. The team would put up the proposal to be taken up at the earliest.
The PWD (R&B) South-Division had completed the construction of the portion of the road during March 2010 that was snapped by similar landslide earlier. The road was the only link for the colony with the rest of the town. However, with the onset of monsoon the same spot has been completely destroyed again and more than 45 vehicles of the area people were stranded within the affected portion of the colony.
Meanwhile, the Panchayat of Lower Chandmari expressed deepest appreciation to the chief engineer and his colleagues for the concern by giving their valuable time and personally visiting the locality for spot verification and assessment. The Panchayat chairman, Thungbemo Mozhui and secretary John Kath in a joint statement expressed gratitude to PWD (South Division) for the concern and also assured the visiting officials of their fullest cooperation in whatever way possible. The Panchayat also appealed the affected residents located along the proposed new route to cooperate generously as it is the only alternative road connectivity for the area people.
