Union minister for Road Transport & Highways, Nitin Gadkari has directed National Highways and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (NHIDCL) to provide appropriate technical solutions in order to ensure adequate slope protection measures along the Dimapur-Kohima four-lane highway. 

This followed a meeting in New Delhi on Tuesday between Gadkari and Meghalaya and Nagaland governor RN Ravi during which the latter pointed out the concerns relating to slope protection on the highway. In absence of adequate slope protection measures along the highway, the loose soil would lead to landslides, especially during the monsoon season, causing disruption to traffic and even damage to the highway, Ravi had pointed out. Gadkari took a serious note of the matter and accordingly directed NHIDCL to adopt necessary measures. The governor met the Union minister at his official residence and discussed the required measures for expediting the NHIDCL projects in Nagaland. 

Ravi thanked Gadkari for positively responding to his request and setting up an exclusive regional office of NHIDCL at Kohima for closely monitoring the various projects under the corporation in the State. Earlier, it was being done from the regional office for the Northeast in Guwahati.

Ravi emphasised improved air, surface and digital connectivity for Nagaland. This was stated in a press release by PRO to governor.
