Nagaland Foothill Road Construction Committee (NFHRCC) has acknowledged the State government for funding the much-awaited historic Foothill Road to the tune of Rs 6,700 lakh under SPA in 2013-14 and 2014-15, including construction of a two-lane 134.80 metre RCC bridge over Doyang river at Governor’s Camp, Liphanyan.

However, it said, due to various reasons, including discontinuation of SPA, the contractor had temporarily suspended the work in 2017-18 but it resumed in October 2018 and was progressing with   68.72 % of works completed till now.

At a meeting held on Saturday, the committee appreciated the State government under the “dynamic leadership” of chief minister Niephiu Rio and deputy chief minister Y Patton for rechristening the Foothill Road as Mega Trans Nagaland Expressway, whose detail project report (DPR) was approved by the Union Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) and awaiting final declaration   from the Prime Minister’s Office. 

NFHRCC also acknowledged chief engineer PWD (R&B)   Limanaro for her prompt response to appeal for   furnishing detail proposals to the State government to make the erstwhile Foothill Road motorable before the mega project starts , as desired by the Naga public in general. NFHRCC also decided to meet both Rio and Patton at the earliest after their return from New Delhi for consultation on the issue of motorable Foothill Road.

The meeting also resolved to request respective village councils and  local area organisations in the vicinity of the Foothill Road, to cooperate and assist NFHRCC members when they will be visiting   the entire stretch sector wise within this week. This was stated in a press release by NFHRCC convener Subu Jamir, general secretary W Lemba Chang and assistant general secretary Chenithung Humtsoe.
