Meghalaya govt to set up bus terminus

Meghalaya Governor Ranjit Shekhar Mooshahary informed that the state government would set up an inter-state bus terminus in Shillong and an inter-state truck terminus in Ri Bhoi district.

He said this while addressing the assembly on the first day of the budget session. The state government has a target of constructing a 1,625-km road in the next three years to benefit about 515 habitations, he said.

The governor added that 171 projects to upgrade state highways, major district roads, strategic roads and urban roads have been sanctioned.

He also informed that the much-awaited Shillong bypass will be completed within this month. Meanwhile, he said the completion of the intermediary Jowai bypass has relieved traffic congestion to some extent as all coal laden trucks are diverted along this road.

The four-laning of NH-40 (Jorabat to Barapani) is making good progress and is targeted to be completed by early 2014. Work on the Shillong-Nongstoin-Tura highway is also progressing well, he said.
