Orang Kalaktang Shergaon Rupa Tenga road to be ready by 2014

The road broadening work on the Orang Kalaktang Shergaon Rupa Tenga (OKSRT) and the Balipara Bomdila Tawang (BBT) roads are on in full swing, Border Roads Organisation (BRO) Commander Col Rahul Trivedi has said. He assured that the OKSRT road would be fully operational by next year.

Rahul Trivedi disclosed this during a meeting last week at Bomdila in West Kameng district with the members of the West Kameng Indigenous People's Society (WKIPS) on the progress being made on the two roads, a press release said in Itanagar. Trivedi has ordered the OKSRT road to be opened to traffic from 5 pm to 8 am and from 12 noon to 1 pm daily, keeping in view the problems faced by the route's commuters.

He further said that the direct road from Rupa to Jigaon would be opened by next month, which would shorten the road distance by about 17 km. No new road cutting work will be undertaken on BBT road unless the old ones are fully blacktopped, he added.
